I have an old Clio 1.2 8v 56-reg, that has seen better days.

Before I seek to repair and/or sell the vehicle, would someone please be able to tell me what type of alloy wheels I currently have on the vehicle?

I have a recollection that I fitted these from another Renault model and at the time these alloys were quite sought after by collectors. I believe they may be worth more than the car itself, (one can live in hope). It's been 10 years since I first got the car, so I have forgotten!


I wanted to check where these alloys have come from and if there is any value in refurbishing and selling them.

Basically I need to know if I should:
  1. Refurbish and resell the alloys separately.
  2. Sell the alloys separately without a refurb (depending on cost).
  3. Sell alloys with car, (they aren't worth anything).
If I can get them to someone that will enjoy them, rather than the scrap heap then that is a small win!

I'd welcome your opinion and advice.

Many thanks,

would sell them with the car. less hassle. If you refurbished them and sold them with good tyres you might get £250-£350. But you would have to buy a set of steel wheels and tyres or similar to replace them. My daughter's clio needed ONE wheel (it was porous and leaking) and I managed to find a set of five alloys with tyres for less than a new wheel. Kept the best and sold the rest individually for more than I paid. All I'm saying is "it's a weird market place". Anything can happen if you have the time.
