These wheels are just so perfect for winter! We are in a unique position to offer original equipment ‘factory run’ alloy wheels for some of our VW winter packages. We deal with a European VW importer that regularly upgrades the vehicles that come out of the factory onto larger, flasher alloys. This leaves a surplus of smaller, plain alloy wheels that make the most fantastic winter wheels. This Polo alloy wheel has a removable plastic rim protector, if the wheel becomes badly kerbed then replacement protectors will be available from VW to make them good as new again – perfect! What are factory run alloys? Quite simply the vehicles come off the train from the factory to our importer, the vehicle is driven off the train and into a warehouse where the wheels are removed and the new ones fitted. So our wheels have had tyres fitted previously but they are essentially as new. There is a small chance that they have picked up the odd very small knock in their warehouse or when the tyre has been removed but this is rare and because the wheels are full silver paint has no effect on the life of the wheel finish. Our wheels are genuine VW, spec as per base model vehicles, they take the original bolts and are a great wheel to keep the original look of your vehicle.
