    PM me if you have any for sale or know where I can get a set!

    To be honest I'm not sure how much they go for, new or seccond hand. I've found some here but am horified at the price!

    Ha ha, yea I read that too!

    Prefer genuine ones tbh, hoping someone had some seccond hand ones for sale. I've got some awesome deep dish bbs rm splits for my golf to fund some nice LM's

    Checked all the usual sites, eBay, Piston Heads etc, they seem to be quite rare!

    Seemingly if you buy reps and hit a pot hole you could be in a world of pain.

    yeah they have done but i used a poor alloy wheel cleaner and never sealed them so i do wounder what would have happened if i took beeter care of them, but for people who want cheap lm's there still of great quality just be weary of the winter weather id have a spare set of wheels for the winter if i were to have another set, but i havent as ive ordered something different
    plus id be well annoyed if i payed 3k for the genuine ones for them to get ruined to

    yeah fair point mate..... i dont think protecting them matters as much as long as you clean them at least once a week.....

    best cleaner ive found is very cherry wheel cleaner available via detailingworld, £20 for 5 litres with foam gun.... mix 20:1 with water (water based) and leave on alloys for 3-4 mins, then jet wash....dont need to touch the alloys with anything, amazing stuff
