I meant there are lots of sets avaliable, most all state they’re demounts, ie taken off a vehicle rather than actually brand new.

United Kingdom 2016 Discovery 4 3.0 SDV6 SE Tech Auto Corris GreyDiscovery 4

New car ordered from stock because it's a good deal but no opportunity for customer to spec different wheels as it comes as it comes, dealer agrees to change the wheels to clinch the sale and/or charges customer the difference, dealer orders requested wheels from 'parts dept' swaps them and is left with a new 'take off' set. Very common.

Wheels ordered as 'parts' don't usually come with centre caps so the originals are used on the new wheels hence why the take offs are then left without caps.

That sounds plausible!

I don’t doubt that’s the case but I’m sure some of them have been reconditioned and being sold as new/demounts.

They haven’t made D4’s with the black & diamond cut 20’s for probably a couple of years therefore surely there aren't the amount of “new” wheels still avaliable, at least on eBay and Gumtree....!!

Thanks Jester, please do.

Perhaps I’m being naive but for that kind of price whatever set I purchase I’m wanting a perfect, with, as new tyres, set.

I don’t want to then have to refurb them and buy new tyres.

Ive got a set of mint alloys (510s) with nearly tyres like the ones below I could be tempted to part with.
