    Hi guys,

    Should any TQS owner wish to give up there standard wheels I'd be happy to take them off your hands. Tyre condition irrelevant.

    Thanks.

    Cheers for the link mate, however, I feel they will go for silly money! Ideally after a bargain but they don't seem to exist anymore! I was watching a set on eBay a few months back and they went for £82, rubbish phone signal robbed me of winning that auction!

    £100 was my upper limit like.

    I paid just over £100 on ebay for a really rough set requiring full refurb and new tyres all round, so unless your after a really rough set, you'll need to spend more.

    Wheel and tyre condition are't really a concern so long as the wheels aren't buckled or cracked. I was going to have them refurb'd at Aerocoat, up the road from me, in the Mk4 Golf anniversary BBS RC finish.

    Those wheels in the link above will go for around £200-£250 I reckon.

    Well if you could keep your eye out or hear of anyone breaking a TQS or has a set if OE wheels, please point them in my direction.

    Cheers mate. I found these on eBay too;

    161405500111

    These have been relisted as they reached £65 before but obviously didn't meet his reserve.

    What would you expect to pay for a set these days?

    Damn! I remember keeping an eye out when I had my b5 TDI Avant but I went for a set of S8 wheels instead. I do like the TQS wheels though, especially polished up, uber cool!

    It's probably the nicest one piece OE wheel I've seen. Really fancy a set now? Did you polish them yourself?

    Beware the polished lip will be ruined within 12months unless it properly done and cleaned/protected from the elements

    Well if I had a set in that good of condition they would be summer wheels only and cleaned weekly.

    The littlest of stone chips will ruin them and cause them to 'spider web' but then i guess if you went the polished route id be getting a few extra coats of lacquer !!

    Yes! They'd be ideal for my 288mm brake upgrade too. Do you still have the centre caps?

    Ok mate, nice one . Scope the wheels out see what you have. As for calipers, have a look and see what state they're in, if they need a good overhaul I'll probably pass as I need to keep spend to a minimum. What price you thinking for the wheels bearing in mind postage. Cheers mate.

    I went with 18s [​IMG]
    probably going to spray them silver/chrome again as everyone keeps saying to me "black don't go with black" or my personal fav usually from the older generation "you've got drug dealer wheels"

    It's funny you say that, I had the exact same wheels from an A8 on my b5 TDI Avant. Just left them silver, car was white, they looked really nice. Good OEM+ mod.

    I agree. My s4 wheels i just got powder coated are too dark. I wanted them grey and they're dark, so i'm selling them on. back to Silver for me! Hence why I wanted some more boleros!

    Hi chaps, still on my quest for a respectable set of summer wheels. Preference would be these;

    Follows by these;

    I can go to about £150, tire condition isn't an issue.

    Cheers.
