Stick on eBay. Someone will have them.

You won't get much for alloys any way, purely because, they don't weigh a-lot.

We scrapped a door from a Corsa C a while back and got £2. So I wouldn't expect alot more for a 4 Alloy wheels that probably weigh less!

There are new rules regarding scrap metal; I'm not sure if you can just walk into a scrap yard anymore?
Anyone scrapped anything in the last couple of months?

yeah you can still scrap stuff easily just need I.D and stuffs done via cheque so theres a paper trail. least thats what i was told by them. so hardly worth cashing in a cheque for £2 lol

Only scrapped that door about 3 months ago...

Mind you, that was Dagenham. I'm pretty sure they'll take what they're given down there.

We got cash in hand, for all of £2. Did get me a nice Ice cream though.

Its not pure aluminium.

Hence why its called an Alloy wheel. As it's aluminium alloy.
