Just to be clear Baz. Are you selling 1 wheel or a set of 4? Potential buyers might be a bit confused as well.

If you were nearer I may have been interested in one of the rougher ones if it was cheap enough, to keep as a spare.

Not to worry - that’s still a bit much for me as it’s not an urgent requirement.
A brand new alloy is £496 + Price of the tyre so unfortunately can't go any lower then that Sorry

I'm looking for a spare, can you either post more close up pictures or email them to me? If the wheel is tidy enough would pay £300 delivered. Who would you use to courier? Thanks Stewart

DM me your email or mobile no. Stewart and will send them over via What's App. Shipping will be via Paisley freight which have always been really good. Wheel is in near mint condition with no Kerbing

£300 for a spare wheel! WTF! I have seen decent full sets of these for less than £600! Must be time to buy a set just to split them up!

Are you talking about the ones on eBay last month where they looked like the Guy had been out Rally driving them 😲. They were in a total state and wouldn't answer where he got them from. Now has a Up GTI Bumper for sale so makes me think he's breaking a GTI 🤔

I've been looking for a while, months ago you could get a single alloy for about £175 but that isn't the case now. A set of 4 sold this week for £1300, one that needed a full refurb was £280 and a decent one was £270 plus carriage with no tyre or centre cap.

This is madness. Stupid money for a set of wheels and tyres. Prices rise through an increase in demand. Either loads of Up GTI owners are wrecking their wheels on pot holes or thieves are stealing sets and creating the demand.

I guess there are too many retired Up GTI owners out there with decent index linked final salary scheme pensions that are happy to drop £300 on a (spare) wheel. Most normal people spend £50 max on eBay or at a breakers!

Arrived safely, well packed and in mint condition exactly as described. Now sat safe in the boot and the gunk & compressor are in the shed. Very happy :)
