Hi all,

I’ve got a busted alloy on my T4, it’s Christmas, I’m broke, and so currently I have my barely functional spare slapped on with my t4 pretty much off the road until I get a replacement.

Any places/websites you would recommend for cheap alloys? I’m located in the South West. I’ve got bugger all money so it’s a credit card job so ideally around the £400-£500 mark, or of course cheaper (I doubt).

Annoyingly the tyres I’ve got on my remaining 3 are fine, and they’re 20” alloys I think. So they HAD to be expensive size!

I’m not particularly fussed what I have, ideally completely black alloys.

Thanks in advance!

Not surprised you got a 20" busted!
Even 18s are "Iffy" on a T4.
17" is the max to use if you want handling and quality ride!

20" load rated will have almost zero sidewalls, so any minor pothole will buckle the wheel.

Yeah I'd heard the same but never bothered getting them changed!

I've gone and bought some 18" ones in the end with plenty of tyre so I should be good. Thanks for the advice though!
