Got Some Volk Ray Rims & Tein Suspension...
Posted 13 April 2009 - 02:50 PM
I have just placed a deposit on a rev 3 GT tubby and the guy has included in the deal a full set of used tein suspension which he bought from GTSchris a while back and a set of Volk rims.
With regards to the rims firstly... Sadly one of the alloys has a pretty bad crack on the inside of the rim edge which was caused by a pot hole. Now i would loved to get it repaired and placed back on the car but dont know how much it will cost.
Then the damage to one of the rear rims
The volks are correctly staggered as the fronts are 16x7 and the rears are 16x8
The car has got some Lenso RS5's on it at the mo but i do like these volks more.
How much are these rims worth and how much you reckon would it cost to fix? Im based in the West Yorkshire area.
Secondly this used tein suspension set. I have been told that if i get them blasted to get the crap off it they will be fine to use in another car. Is this true and also what value would you put on these?
Trying to figure out how good the deal that i got actually was with these extra goodies.
Cheers in advance.

that must have been a very big pot hole are you sure the guy you got them from did not run too long on a under inflated tyre?
as for the teins mine were looking the same when i sold the yaris, I'm not impressed with tein & we are tein dealers

Some nasty crack for sure... are they repairable?
Also the car is from Aberdeen so they have some rough country roads for sure! lol Apparently the chap said that he only noticed that the was an issue after it kept loosing tyre pressure. The chap who looked at it said that the crack seemed to have been there for a while but this pothole made it worse.

its never going to be as strong as it once was
I'd attempt to replace it if it was mine.

Tell you what cos i'm a nice guy i'll dispose of the lot for you, and not even charge you for the pleasure.
There is a guy in scunny who repairs rims, he did 1 for me a few yrs ago, was a good repair circa £40 iirc., but it was only a slight bend not a crack.
Those coilies will go again no worries just a quick strip clean n rebuild.

Cant say i have heard of any that have had issues after repairing them but then its all about what exposure they have got.
With regards to the Shocks.. i have been advised these HA types are fully adjustable etc and demand a premium of £350/£400 used.
Dale V has already told me he wants them @£350 possibly once i have figured out their true value etc...
