As stated before, these wheels are £477.74 inc vat from VW, a Goodyear tyre is around £135 if you can find one, so Baz's prices are more than fair imo.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!
