    You can get some decent ones sleep envy but they are hard to come by. With quality wheels like BBS etc, they are expensive, but you pay for what you get :icon_thumright:

    thanks guys. i just wondered.

    Someone was interested in my MTM Bimotos and said they could get some new ones off ebay for £799. turned out to be just reps with chepo tyers. sure they look similar.

    i just wondered what the actual diff was. i mean i understood the MTM were better than the audi Genuines.
