    Seems like an average price just now if they're new.

    Have a look at the thread on the group buy forum for Rochford tyres who will offer discount if you quote the forum.

    I paid £799 for mine about 4 month ago.
     
  4. These are good prices for replica's but you should take into account what tyres they come with and delivery costs. Rochford tyres also do these wheels for a good price if you mention this forum.

    Also check if the ones on eBay are multi-drilled (to make them hub-compatible with more cars) - it's obviously a profit maximising method by the manufacturer, and probably makes for a weaker product.

    AFAIK Rochford's RS6 reps are available in different fitmnets, but only one type per part - which in my eyes makes them superior to some of the ones regularly seen on eBay.

    Regards,

    JAY4,

    How come you managed to post your reply at 3:07pm when it is still 14:20 ? ?

    I know you're in South Wales but surely there's not an hours time difference from up here in Scotland ? ?

    I've heard alot about Federals on the civic type-r forum and the general opinion is that they are very good. From what i can remember they are made by a bigger well manufacturer and have launched these with new european branding and are being offered at a more than cometitive price to get market familiarity.

    I think they are American but cant remember exactly.
