    hi all just a friendly warning about this company advertising on ebay and the net in general. they advertise 5 wheels and tyres upto 17" collected and delivered anywhere in the mainland uk for £42 what they fail to advertise is that your gonna struggle to get 5x 17" wheels with tyres to weigh anywhere near the 90kg limit on the shipping and will charge you for going over the weight limit, also you have to wrap 5 wheels in 3 parcels which aint easy due to the weight again. i cancelled my order the same day when i realised and they're refusing to give me a refund.i just think they're very missleading

    5x 17" audi b5 s4 avus wheels weigh 104kg so do b6 18" avus wheels so unless your selling lightweight jobbies steer clear

    I think your covered by the 'distance selling act' whereby you have a 7 day cooling off period from when you purchased it. Try getting in touch with Ebay to see what they have to say about the matter, how did you pay?

    I sell alloy wheels and I regularly use WheelCarrier.co.uk. I never have any problems with them and their prices are good too, starting at £8.99 + VAT. They're really friendly and i would strongly reccomend them to anyone who has any wheels etc to send,

    I suspect that's your own website, it's registered to someone called Gary MacDonald.
