I am looking for some 17" wheels for an A3. Are any of you guys selling them??? can you recommend a cheap good place to get brand new or 2nd hand rims and tyres in Sydney.

I may be convinced to sell my TT wheels, new with new P 6000's. As soon as I get my car. Let me know.

Try TCCA Motorsports in Artarmon and ask for Milan, that's where I got my used TT rims from.

:wink:

Cheers Liam

Liam,

If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for the used TT rims and did they come with tyres?

Mitch.

No worries Mitch, seeing as I'm rapt with the deal I got I'll tell anyone who wants to know. :lol:

I paid $1500 for wheels AND tyres, 225/45/17 Michelin Pilot Sports with 90-95% tread left. Man, the tyres alone would be worth that much if I bought them new. Two of the wheels had massive scratches on all the spokes, from kerbside-touch parking. So I paid an extra $160 in total to get those two rims fixed, better than new! $1660 all up for TT wheels with some pretty damn good rubber. I'm happy!

:wink: :D :wink:

A mate of mine has a TTQ with about 33% left on the Pilots and some kerb scratches on the rims. He is offering them to me for $1200 so I guess that is a pretty good deal then.

Get 'em Mitch. The repairs are pretty cheap really and you'll be surprised at how well they come up afterwards! You won't even need to make VW badges for your centre caps! :lol:

My wheels have some kerb-rash (mainly around the outer rim) courtesy of the previous owner. Can anyone recommend a good wheel repairer in Sydney on the northside?

Looks like it should be in the $50-100 range for a restoration per wheel?

Thanks!
