Hi,

I was doing some shopping around for 10" rims and I need some support:

1) what's the difference between the revolution and the revolite?
2) where's the best place to buy rims, value for money and quality. I saw he normal site, mini spares, mini sport and James brown wheels.

Thanks

I've purchased twice via JBW, the second time they sent a mixed set of Revs and the wrong sleeve nuts - they were a pain to deal with on the phone, had to take them back in and get it sorted, which was a real pain.

 

Never had a problem with minispares on anything I've ordered (and that's been for nearly 35 years of ordering items), mini sport are slow at dispatch.

 

I think (?) Revolites are a copy of real Revs.  I know they sometimes peel the clear coating quickly, real Revs never had this problem back in the day.

I just had a set of 6 x 10 mambas arrive from JBW today and was very impressed with the quality! The delivery was also very fast so can't complain!

I got 60 notes off a package deal from their eBay shop plus the free shipping as mentioned above, some seriously good deals at the moment. Items arrived well packaged and immaculate, complete with chrome valve covers and caps and chrome wheel nuts.

I've bought a few sets off Midland wheels and not had a problem.  To be honest they've been spot on with the customer service, they sold me a set of out of stock wheels and before taking any money contacted me and offered me a deal on an alternative.

a lot of the aftermarket wheels all come from the same place (jbw/midland wheels) so really any price difference is down to individual supplier mark ups. I've got a set of the jbw Dunlop d1s and the quality is ok but they MUST be looked after, i recommend sealing them before fitting as the lacquer is not the best and will flake and allow white worm depending on what wheels you go for. My d1s are starting to look a bit sorry now 5 years on and around 40k miles which while not great probably isn't anyworse that many mainstream car manufacturers out there.

My lad bought a set of wheels from JBW a few months ago via their Ebay shop. They were much cheaper than buying from JBW’s own website or even from them direct at the Castle Combe Action Day.
As has been said above they came with chrome nuts and free fast delivery.

Just checked and they dont have the mambas on their eBay site unfortunately

I bought wheels from Huddersfield. My only criticism is ring before hand to make sure theyve got them actually in stock. Mine took almost 9 months of emails, phone calls and them actually lying to my face before I got them delivered.
