    South Coast Wheels

    really dissapointed, just come back from Southampton after trying to get in touch with South Coast wheels for last two weeks to buy some new alloys,

    they've gone bust it seems, found them emptying the shop..

    anyone got a good recommendation for a KNOWLEGABLE localish supplier of alloys,

    don't want to use ebay really unless I can see the quality, also ideally want a specialist not Halfords!!

    as said really sad, bought four sets of alloys off these guys in three years and couldn't rate them highly enough,

    seems though they couldn't make it work

    Well i work at the bognor branch. Whereabouts are you? We only ever get sent 15s and 17s for stock generally. But we have hundreds of different wheels available we have to order in. Takes about 3-5 working days generally. What sort of wheels were you after?

    Gosport,

    used to work in Bognor and Littlehampton so know it well,

    my problem is I don't really know if it'll be 18s with top grade tyres either BBS CH style or something else classy, or perhaps something a bit lairy with a stainless lip, maybe even 19s, I need to discuss offsets etc to get the fit I want, when I have time, I'll try and get over that way

    cheers
