Non standard Alloys should add about 10% to your insurance premium.

More desireable theft aspect, alters car from manufacturers specs etc etc.

Depends very much on the type of claim in my experience, If its theft of said wheels, you aint disclosed them, YOU AINT COVERED.

You skid on ice etc, loose it in a corner, BIG delay in claim as "What else wasnt disclosed" comes into it. Then pay out to make car back to pre accident crash, you bend one wheel, be a renault wheel added back.........

Worst case, Any third party you hit would get a pay out, your claim is kicked out then the insurer takes legal action against you for breach of contract to recover the cost of the claim.....

..... For the sake of 17................
