Has anyone had a good or bad experience with buying wheel and tyre packages off eBay?

I have been getting pricing off this mob at Ferntree Gully that seem OK.

Foe $5 more Option 1 at Hamilton can sell you a set of Rotas and they will test fit to make sure all is well.

Thay can also supply a range of tyres to suit and do a wheel alignment to set the car up. They are very competitive on tyre price and the wheel alignment that is done is much better than a high turnover franchise where old school cars aren't the norm.

$5 more for good old fashioned face to face service, no decission needed in my book  :)

Perfect, I was looking for options and the internet always takes me interstate. PB you are 100% correct, face to face is so much better.

Is this the mob? http://www.option1ga...u/NewWheels.htm

You sure they are only $900/set?

Thanks 4014, they were offering me the correct offset, this was just a base price.

I was close, $960 for 15x9 and up and $840 a set up to 8" wide for 15's.

But they still offer the option of drive in and drive out plus you can try different wheels on the car.
