    Ronal R10 Alloy Wheels

    What do you think of these? I'm bidding on them but they need a definite refurbishment. Recon they are worth the buy or should I stay clear?

    Bare in mind a few good sets with tires go for 5/600. Around 50 quid per wheel to refurb and they need tires.

    Would look ace on your car though!

    Do you think the condition is alright to be returbed? One if the wheels has a chunk out the side? I am probably going to get them but wanna make sure that they ain't duds

    I've seen far worse wheels then that be refurb'd mate, if there's a place near you that will do full acid dipping etc to their wheels and has a good name they won't worry about that.

    How much you got for wheels? Might be worth waiting till the right set comes up

    I get paid Thursday so I will have the money but I was going to budget 400 for the wheels.

    If I can get this set for 250 I think it'll be worth it

    Decent enough budget. Thing is by the time you've added refurb and decent tires wouldn't you been looking at another 400 on top of that?

    Unfortunately yes, but there are two tyres on them so would only have to get two for now

    They don't look too bad in comparison to some, will look good on your car

    For refurbishment I know lepsons in gillingham seems to have good reviews

    It does mate as previously said those alloys with tires in good condition go for 5/600 and sometimes cheaper. Just got to wait around, the alloys I just got I waited a year haha

    I was disappointed I didn't have some for pvs but doubting if they'll be on for trax but always next year . Waiting will be worth it and involve less money

    Just emailed some people about a refurb cost, hopefully will hear back soon.

    Wheels end in about 2 hours so I am gonna set a limit of about 250 to buy them. If it goes over I'll keep looking
