Golf mk7 / Re: 3G Passat Pretoria Alloys an alternative?
« Last post by willni on 05 May 2021, 23:28 »
Are you getting them delivered or going to collect them? I bought a set of  new VW rims in Durham which I think was a similar distance from Cairnryan and I was advised to collect as the dealer told me they had never managed to send a set via courier which survived unscathed. It was a bit of a drive but a day out and was around £180 on a day return.

Delivered via Parcelforce, I've never had any issues with alloys being shipped to me. Since they won't have any tyres on them, they'll have to be sent in the original alloy wheel boxes which will protect them fine. As well as make a nice new home for my old Santiago alloys.

Update, so now repaired and all seems well. Interestingly the bodyshop had 2 Mark 7.5s to repair...mine and an R. Dealership seen a few recently. Such a shame. Good luck to others in getting this resolved. :smiley:

Willni just wondering where u bought pretoria wheels. Am debating a new set as Austin’s starting to show age. Thanks.

I got mine from Barnetts of St Andrews Volkswagen (Link below), saw them on ebay, exchaged a few messages and they had a great attitude. So rang them up and made a deal, although always get a quote from your local dealer they may be able to throw in free tyre fitting to help sweeten the deal if they can't beat the part price.  :smiley:

At least the evenings are drawing out, most of it will be in the daylight...

Yes, but I was hoping to be able to collect on my terms within their operating hours as a paying customer who's got a long journey ahead of them. Suppose it's the price you pay for them beating the DTD price by £450.

I'm picking my ID3 up on Saturday. For the purposes of 'lead times indications, it was exactly a week between my car arriving in the UK (Stage 6) and arriving at the dealership group (stage 7).

So I have a 240 mile trek on the train from Newcastle to Evesham to pick it up. I'd like to get there as early as possible to get on with my 4 hour drive home as early as possible but unfortunately they won't deal with me until 4pm as they usually don't allow pick-up  of new cars at the weekend when it's prime selling time (snaring new customers). Not quite the result I was hoping for, but they already have the promise of my money.

I've ordered a set of the Passat/T-Roc Pretorias so I will update this with an accurate weight when they arrive.

Also I just moved my Michelin Pilot Sports 4S' (225/35R19) across from the BBS CI-R's (8.5J) I had onto my Santiagos, before I sold the BBS. Does anyone have any photos of how the 225/35R19 will fit on a 8J alloy?

As I'm not sure whether I should get some 235/35R19's or not for a little bit more protection and comfort.
