    Summer's over and now it's time to put the summer wheel's away until 2010 . Looking today at my winter wheels, S-Line 18's, i thought they could do with a refurb as the wheel's are five year's old. The last time i had a set of wheel's refurb was six year's ago so when i phoned up a local company i used, i was pleased when the guy gave me the price. After a little chat with the owner and booking the 18's in for this Friday, pick them up next Tuesday. On Checking some paper work for the wheel's i had done 6 year's ago i was over the moon the price i paid for refurb in 2003 is the same as the price i will be paying this year for the six stage refurb..

    No not yet, I'll look into in to it in the next couple of weeks.
    Do you think Fleabay would be a good place to start?

    I got them off a VW so I used H&R PCD adapters which help with the poke:

    Renbod. They look good very much the same as the MTM's could you tell me what offset they are. Also are the tyre's 225 or 235 .

    The tyre's are 225/40's but I'll need to check the offset, the wheels are off the car now as I've cracked one. I'll get it repaired and use it as a spare but I'm still looking for a replacement. Here's a better tyre picture as it shows a subtle strech:
