Hey there peeps. Was just wandering if anyone on here has dealt with


for wheels and tyres for your T4s, and if so how did you find their service and how did the tyres last.

Please let me know of your experiences

Failing this let me know where you've got your alloys from and who you'd recconmend.

Many thanks Gareth and Laura :ILU::ILU::ILU:

I can reccomend Rochford Tyres. they are on ebay, and the web, prices differ slightly BUt they will go with the cheaper whatever way you go.
they have a 'T4 wheel selecter too...which is nice.

Been there, busy place, nice people, no problems, and good deal i reckon.http://www.alloywheels.com

I have had wheels and tyres from Rochford in the past and the quality of the wheels was good and prices likewise. I did find that the tyres were not load rated for T4s though. Always worth checking before parting with cash!
Some of the sellers on ebay are offering very poor quality wheels though. Recommendation is a better route than being purely cost driven, for sure. Good luck. T:

Recently purchased some 18" alloys wheels from Wheelbase in Oldham, Manchester.

(Just over t'hill from me)

No problemo.

Picked them up in person, Just alloys & no tyres.

Reasonable price for what I wanted & Good service I thought.

Good point as they always seem to put 225/40's on 18" alloys for some reason & the load ratings ain't exactly the best ;)

Means your from Pontypridd why donít you pop into Roadrunner in Tonteg I have had 3 sets of wheels of them for my t4's and they have an excellent selection in the shop to choose from. They even stock wheels for T4's

There prices are good too and if there is anything wrong with them you just take them back to the shop. I have never had any problems though
