Sounds a bargain. I reckon a delivery mileage set of black Cascavels would be £650 - 700 now. New tyres alone would cost 500. The wheels are almost throw away now.

Boris - if you are looking for a set of new Davenports, get ones with the 235 tyres. My last Cali had the 215‘s which were way less comfortable on the road than the 235’s.
I agree with that they do seem to hold the road better that the original 215s 16 inch that came with the van. Still have them so maybe put them back on over the winter to save the 235 tyres for the summer.

If time permits the answer is not to pay for the 17”s as an option, but to take it as standard, buy a set of ‘new’ removed Devonports and tyres for £550 from eBay and sell your beach wheels and tyres for £350ish.
Time isn't an issue as I have a set of steels with winter tyres that will be fitted almost as soon as the vehicle arrives. I normally change to winters around the 1st of November depending on the long range weather forecast. I had no choice but to pay for 17" wheels as the van has 17" front brakes.

I am already on the look out for a set of new Devonports and will make a decision about advertising the Cascavals once it has arrived.

Yes I agree. I'm already on that.

Ah, hadn't twigged that.

I've a set of 'new' Davenports with tyres for sale here, but you may find some more locally.

Glossop is near enough to Canterbury for me to be very interested. What tyre size are they? I am looking for a new set of 235s. If they are 235s can I send you a PM?

They're not I'm afraid. They are (I think we've confirmed) the better mpg 215s Continentals. It's rare they pop up with 235s but it does happen. Most come from Sportline vans not Cali's.

I bought them to put winter tyres on (I wasn't enjoying the steels). As I already had 215 Conti's on my summer cascavels, they suited my situation.

The vans destined to be Sportlines come into the country with T32 steels on so I am informed.

If 2into1 can get them to me I could get them to Medway or even Canterbury. I need to visit my Dad at some point who lives in Medway. I was thinking of going down to the south cost to pick my steels up.

Just a thought.

Now that's a kind offer. I have sent 2into1 a pm so we'll see what happens.
Thanks.

We’ve had a set of Cascaval’s from another VW vehicle done and paid £100/wheel. Ours weren’t too bad but they all had a mark or worming.

We’ve just taken delivery of our Ocean and they have Cascaval’s but I do prefer Davenports for maintainance ease.
