There £25 a wheel on eBay too so I wouldn't look at it as a money making exercise. Although if you type the manufacturing number into google you can get them for £20 so you lost out on a £20 saving there.http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00DPEHOP2/?tag=cliospnet01-21
Nice spot, just bought a brand new set of four of these for £101. Cant go wrong really, you could knock these out on e bay for more.
Just noticed I bought the last four,result.
The model I bought are at cheapest £34 each on e bay ( and a rrp of £78 ), so I havent lost out really,and despite the fact I agree cheap wheels can be of a lower quality and standard and in some unfortunate ( usually when misused ) circumstances fracture, the fact is I have been using a set of wheels for the track I blagged off a scrapper car in the scrap yard I work in and have been using them for 18 months with no problem,and have bought various sets off e bay that I dont know the history of without any problems. Trading standards in this country generally filter out unscrupulous junk and stop it being sold.There £25 a wheel on eBay too so I wouldn't look at it as a money making exercise.

Just remember lads a alloy wheel for £20 isn't going to be the best in terms of safety just be prepared for sudden fractures and at high speed :dead: a friend of mine had a near death experience when his rota alloy sheared off at the hub due to a manufacturing fault wasn't nice put it that way.
Agreed, I was reading this thinking "is wheels really a place to be saving money and getting a totally unknown quantity" but if they really are TUV then that certainly changes things.I was just thinking wouldn't use them on track but with TUV approval (if real) that changes it a bit!
