    As above. Not too concerned about the wheel condition but tyres newish and not too worn please. Full winters or cross climates/all seaons.
    Going to mid m4 corridor so the closer the better!
    Thanks

    Can't help with the wheels, but just make sure that anything you are offered are from a 203 as the 204s have different stud diameters.

    ok, I'll bear that in mind. ETs tend to be different on 204s it seems but I would have assumed the studs would fit.

    You can fit 204 wheels to a 203, but you need a set of 12mm thread to 14mm hole adapter studs, available from alloywheelsdirect.net. However, you cannot fit 203 wheels to a 204 - as I discovered 6 years ago, had to sell my 1 year old 203 winter set and buy a replacement set for the 204!

    Found a set on ebay. Brand new merc alloys and new dunlop winter 3d tyres for 400+ paisley freight. Seemed ok.
    Mind I'll be interested to see the DOT codes on the tyres.
