Someone's going to get ripped off (wheels)

Tyres aren't N0 rated and the wheels are replicas, nowhere in the ad does it state that :|

And now they're back on as a buy it now. I was mistaken though they do appear to be N0 tyres but the wheels are replicas.

Relisted as a buy it now (see second post), still no mention of the wheels being replicas though.

I've been looking out for a set, had my suspicions on these so asked the question and got the following reply -

"Not originals - good quality though

Get Outlook for Android"

I've got zero issue with reps to be honest (I wouldn't but some myself though) but they should be sold as such.

At least he was honest!!!! Replicas are dangerous... they are heavy, poor quality and have heard some horror stories... £1500 for replicas - thats steep!!!

Someone will pay that thinking they are genuine wheels, I really don't think something like this should be 'buyer beware.' Thankfully most reps on ebay are listed as such.
