Mk1 Prestige alloy wheels - set of 4.

Post by Charles827si » Thu May 07, 2015 7:17 pm

I have for sale a set of 4 Mk1 Prestige alloy wheels in 15inch format, as fitted to the late model Mk1s.

I bought these a couple of years back for £300, and had them refurbished. They still look to be ‘as new standard’ because they never had tyres fitted, so they haven’t seen duty on the road.

The cost of the refurb for ‘the four’ was £108.00 and this carried out by a recommended alloy refurbishing place.
I had the intention to fit them to my coupe, but then decided they would be too small, and kept them in dry storage. The coupe’s had 16” wheels as standard.

I had put an ad on 800 Facebook arm a while back, and had some interest from a lad in the Netherlands, but till now, he has not got back in touch with me.

I would like £400.00 for the set of four. I will only sell them as a set. I think this is a reasonable enough sum, considering these are unavailable to buy new off the shelf, and they are ‘as new as one can expect.'

I can deliver these to a UK address for the price of my fuel, or the buyer can collect alternatively; - though if you want them delivered I would asked to be paid in full upfront via paypal please.

As you can imagine these are rare and hard to come by, they are worth the money; - so first come.

Please ask for additional pictures.

charles are you sure they are "15, as i always thought that mk1 prestiges were in 16" flavour only, nice wheels though, I'm obsessed with them in reality but can't afford £400.

They came in 2 sizes , the 16" ones being rarer than the 15" ones. The holes in the wheel face are more circular.

Hi Charles

I've got a set of four that need refurbishing, can you tell me where you had yours done please, £108.00 for the four seems very reasonable.

Regards

Ian

Hi, Yes they are the 15inch. I would ideally like the 16inch type for my Coupe when I can find a set. These were refurbished by Cas Coatings in Bradford, West Yorkshire.

Thanks.

It will need some work doing but she went off the road in October 2*** so not much salt if any underneath. I have a used fuel tank if needed but as you say, lots of bits will be stiff but not necessarily beyond redemption. Luckily she lacks ABS so that's one less thing to worry about. This summer I will start to look at recommissioning her.

Just to bump this thread; I'm still trying my all to flog these. I've advertised on EBay and on the FB group.

£300 Collection preferred pls.
