    WANTED URGENTLY: Alloy Wheel 16" (Standard wheel from 2003/52 plate 1.4 Petrol SE)

    REQUIRED IMMEDIATELY! GOOD MONEY PAID!

    As shown in the photo attached, I urgently require a wheel exactly like this. It has transpired that a previous owner had badly curbed the alloy on the inner edge, and now I need to either have it repaired (if it's possible to do so) and/or replace it.

    My wheel is (I believe) the standard wheel fitted to all SE models 52 plate/2003 cars and is 16inch with 185/50R16 tyres - of course if your wheel has no tyre, that's ok, if it needs a new tyre, that's ok, if it has the wrong size tyre, that's also ok - but obviously it would be preferable and great if it already had the right size tyre that didn't need replacing.

    Would prefer to collect from Herts/Beds and Bucks regions if at all possible, but if a courier isn't too expensive, then I would consider paying for that too of course. I'm based at St.Albans so within easy reach to North London areas too.

    Any help anybody can offer would be greatly appreciated!

    I think the courier would be around 8 if you use someone cheap (e.g., parcels2go or many others). Just don't use parcelforce.

    Thanks for the tip Mike, though I think you meant "Parcelfarce"

    Hi, i have one with tyre.
    The alloy is in good condition. Tyre is borderline legal thats about 2 to 2.5mm.
    email me on a2@ukeat.com and happy to send pics.
    Payment via bank transfer 60 plus delivery.

    Only reason for selling is i have bought a set of these alloys that i need to refurb for winter tyres. So currently i have 9 of these alloys, of which only four will fit on the car at a time!
    Car 1: 2003 1.6FSI, Awsome GTi fitted FSD dampers and Weitec 30/30 springs with rear anti-roll bar, Skipton Cruise, HEL brakelines and ATE pads.

    Car 2: 2002 1.6FSI SE with leather, OSS, cruise, DIS and in need of some TLC to make it fantastic again.

    You have mail! Tyre actually has more tread than I remembered, but then unlike one of my mates, I dont judge a tyre by how many threads of the carcass are showing!

    All sorted now thanks to CHB.
    And a pleasure dealing with you too.

    Edit 23/04:
    Wheel arrived today courtesy of HDN c/o Parcels2Go.com, absolutely perfect condition and CHB was even kind enough to include the centre cap! Actually, apart from it being lovely and straight, it doesnt even seem to have a scratch on it so am well chuffed as it's so much nicer than the scabby alloy that the car had when I bought it (I did however use that as means to knock the price down a little)! Anyway, thanks again CHB - a pleasure dealing with you.
