    Thanks addo have been looking and prices are coming back at about 75gbp per wheel. I think this is bit rich 13kg each . I am getting 25 kg packages from china at about $40 air freight!

    Try pricing up as three boxes, 2+2+1.

    I treated them as 16◊7 rims and had a total of £215-odd.

    I was charged about 40gbp per wheel for four wheels (they came in two boxes) when I ordered some Compos last year (just used who ever R&R alloys used to ship to WA)

    Gee I had 4 new wheels for my alfa shipped out from the uk in twos to avoid breaching $1000 for 58 pds per 2 arriving in 5 days! I guess commercial concerns get better deals.

    Sounds like a better bet than spokes - does it have spoked wheels now? Strange devices.

    Don't let anyone write Aston Martin anywhere on the packaging.

    How are the Xantia and the DS?
