    Yeah mate, they are quite expensive - £150 from the dealers but IMO totally worth it!

    I'm pretty sure they sell direct and through dealers. If you wanted a set I'm sure I could get you a deal.

    Nice wheels Pete, really like them!

    I was thinking of getting some wheels for summer and then keeping my OEM wheels for winter. Question, do you use winter specific tyres?

    I haven't done before. I had a set of 225/40 Michelin's kicking around, so it was very cheap to just buy some rims to go with them.

    Still not sure until my other wheels are bolted in whether they'll be used for 3 months, 6 months, or 9 months, etc. of the year.

    thanks, i'm trying to decide if i should bite the bullet and get mine refurbed, buy a set of CH's or go for the cades, although i'd want them in black .... so i guess i'd have to get them painted ...
