Searching for some 17" alloys, nothing on eBay. Anyone got a spare set???
I could only find these, in need of some TLC and collection only
Honda Accord Original 17" Epsilon Alloy Wheels - Set of 4 | eBay

Cheers @Nels, they are the type i'm looking for, but both collection only!
It could be worth contacting them anyway as I was giving away two tyres the other day for collection only as I didn't want the hassle of sending such bulky items. Guy on a forum from down south said he'd take them and simply arranged a Yodel pickup - saved me having to worry about unknown weights & costs and then recovering the haulage costs afterwards - he just got billed instead. Couldn't have gone any smoother.
So could be worth saying you'll arrange collection of them?
Agree with @ArcticFire, see if they are happy for you to arrange collection by one of the delivery companies.
They would also have to agree to PayPal, as I note they both prefer cash on collection.
Otherwise, the Yorkshire breakers have them quite regularly and that's a little closer for you.
Is Yorkshire a dangerous place for Accords?
Only for those that are on their way to the Honda Heaven.
Both ends of the spectrum in Yorkshire though, there are 3 very, very pampered Accords in Leeds.
There are indeed
Bought a set of Epsilon tonight for £49.99, need a refurb and new tyres.
I have a set of EVO 8 wheels I have just posted in the classifieds
Also have a set of Pentas but I want to keep them
£49.99 for a set, that's good
Glad you're sorted.
Looking forward to seeing them on your baby!
Just a heads up mate - if they paid by paypal then they could easily claim back all the money despite the fact that you stated collection only on your listing. After they open a claim, paypal will ask for proof of delivery which you wouldn't have/only have the collection receipt. Even then, with Yodel, it will just say delivered so paypal will ask for the payment receipt to confirm delivery address which the buyer has, not you. Obviously I assume most buyers wouldn't be this scrupulous but still always keep your guard up.
EDIT: Just realised you sold it to a guy on a forum - unless he paid for it as "payment for items" transaction then you're safe.
Well collected my £49.99 alloys this morning, bit muddy but after a refurb and new tyres will look like new.
Next big question is OEM colour or maybe a dark grey?
Saw these a while ago...
What do you think ?
@Nels what colour is that? I think we have a winner already!
Two tone paint. Very nice.
Unfortunately, they were an eBay listing quite some time ago.
I kept the pics as an idea for mine.
I don't know what the colours are, but it's the lacquer on top of the two tone that sets it off.
How about hydro dipping
Great buy mate, I'm also trying to decide colours for a refurb at the moment. Don't go hating on me, but I think BMW Frozen Metallic Grey would work really well, you wouldn't be the first using a BMW colour to refurb your alloys.
