I hope you bought plenty at that price Paul :lol:

Many sellers now asking stupid money for pretty poor wheels :?
In our area it's £60 per wheel for a refurb and around £50 for a 13" tyre fitted.....Soon adds up for a set of 4 :shock:


That’s because they are cart wheels , wait till you get these steel wheels down in deepest Devon .............. :whistle: :whistle:

That's just it Andy, 'sellers'. It's become a dirty word that has. I got mine from a decent honest member on here.

Best place if possible :D
No one expects something for nothing, but an honest price to reflect the condition.

I have 4 refurbed Pepperpots in the garage with old tyres, but no plan to sell :)

At least Laser wheels haven't shrunk over the years though like Wagon Wheels. Imagine what that would be like, you go to order a new set of rims and find they can only be supplied as 10" rather than 13" any more.

I had a Mars Bar the other night. The standard size now is barely bigger than the fun size of old!

It's a pity the price doesn't reflect the size of today's chocolate bar :?

Exactly Andy. They reduce the size, keep the cost the same (or actually increase it) and proclaim that it's for the health of the buyer.

Yeah, we really can't see through that!
