    Decided that my alloys are a bit knackered so decided to go back to good old steel rims. I need 4. Could anyone point me in the right direction please?
    Cheers.

    Those tyreleader prices don't seem too bad. If you want secondhand, try a breaker's yard, the same wheels are fitted to Vauxhall Movanos and Nissan Cabstars.

    Just something niggling at the back of my mind but don't alloys have different mountings to steels? It might need some additional work other than just swapping them over?

    Have you considered getting the allows reconned. Might be cheaper. Most respray places can redo alloys as good as I new (I believe).

    I had mine done on my MX-5 and it cost £100 good as new. They cleaned off the old paint, sanded them back down and resprayed.

    Thanks for that, I''ll look in to it. The reason I want to change is that the alloys leak a bit and I'd read that older alloys can sort of not provide a perfect seal and so sort of bleed a bit. I could of course be talking utter bollox!

    I think that its the bolts that are different, alloy wheels are thicker needing longer ones.

    @Gromett The longer bolts cannot be used for steel wheels because they screw into 'blind' holes and bottom out before they grip the wheel so a new set of bolts for each wheel will be required.

    Quite right - alloys do eventually leak and can be a right pain.
