    Default R50 wheels and tyres

    I'm looking for a set of 4 wheels and legal tyres for my R50.

    Condition of the wheels themselves isn't important nor is the size or type (would prefer OEM though) I do however need the tyres to be legal!

    For why? Well my R50 project is currently sitting on 4 bald tyres so when I come to put it in for an MOT (once I've sorted all the other little jobs out) I just need something to throw on so that it won't fail on the tyres. Once I get an MOT pass then I'll be getting the current wheels refurbished and new tyres put on but I don't want to shell out this expense until I know the car is going to pass it's MOT!

    Looking for cheap as chips here!!

    Ooh they look smart, I'm already picturing them in in black / silver JCW style....

    What size are they, 15inch? Also am I right that they are from a later model, I assume they'll fit an R50 ok?

    If you could come back to me on the tyre condition that would be great.

    Thanks Stoney but I managed to pick up a more suitable set (i.e. cheaper!) at the weekend.
    Yours look too good for what I need them for - hope you find another buyer!
