Bought these rims from Gumtree for R1000.

They’ll need a bit of a polish, maybe.

Edit: the “bit of a polish” was a full straightening… set me back R2400. But now they’re brand new, basically.

VW part number 17S 601 028A, 6J x 14 H2 ET38. If this means nothing to you, it’s all explained in the Wheel & Tyre Bible. It’s a 14 inch rim, 6 inches wide, with a J bead profile, a hump on each side to keep the bead on, and an offset of 38mm. It takes a 175 to 195 wide tyre.
