Set of four alloys and winter tyres

PostPosted by webleymk3 » Tue Mar 07, 2017 9:55 pm

This weekend the trusty mule will get traded in so i'm looking to move on the spare alloys...

Here's my quandary..

The best alloys have the knackered summer tyres on them, so what its more appealing, a set of decent alloys with a mix of tyres, or a set of winter tyres with varying quality of alloys??

The other option is i pay around £50 to have the winters moved onto the good alloys, but will i make that back... anyone out there interested in these?

Not much to photograph. they are the standard 17" alloy with Yokohama Winter Tyres. I'll get photos up another time once it's daylight.

Thanks Webz

For me it would depend on the price and age of the car but if the cost is more than say £2k I would look at the condition of the alloys. Although I have never done it - the first thing to do, I tell myself, after buying a used car is to buy new tyres for it! The tyres are the only contact with the road and I would not buy used tyres, so why do I accept used tyres on a used car? Anyway, for me I would look at both but concentrate on the alloys - if the alloys are badly kerbed it doesn't augur well for the past ownership.
