personally i would if you shop around you can get brand new copies for the same money with 4 budget tyres and contys arent saying much in that as good as they are they make budget brands at half the price with a better rating but if you love them mate who cares fitthem and be happy

I think you got them cheap myself. I wouldn't touch copy alloys, god knows where they are made. All that you have to look out for now in buckled alloys. If they're ok, I think you got yourself a bargain.

Put some photos up when you git them to the car! :D

I would say that was a bargain, I bought a set of zetec S alloys off a member here, after 2 months I had them refurbished and a set of brand new tyres, cost me almost 900 quid in the end all in, but at least its still cheaper than buying from Ford

I live in the land of 'copies' (even the ladies! LOL!) and would think carefully before considering copy alloys. I see twisted one every day, mate.

Good luck

On the other hand, ive had several sets of replica alloys, and never once had a problem with any of them, all good value in my opinion. Just sayin ;-)

I'll have a little look at them
