When a wheel company stops making a certain model of wheel, does that then mean that you can't get the wheel ever again?

I am after some 16's or 17's, but i don't want to get into the situation if i need one i can't get one.

Are any wheel companies good for still stocking old stock ?

Depends very much on the company. I know you can still get Alessios years after they apparently ceased production but I dare say you'd have a job locating more obscure stuff. It does beg the question of whether you want a discontinued wheel in the first place - thats going to be an old design surely?

No, i want a modern wheel, but if i crashed my car in 2 years time, i might not be able to get hold of the wheel. Then i'd have to buy 4 new ones

I feel this post is pointless as the said incident has not happened...stop worrying and concentrate on not crashing your car...some people worry too much...

Now please GTF and chill out!

once a wheel has been discontinued thats usually it, they sell the remaining wheels they have left.

but wheelbase over yea bought sum sort of stoopid quntity summat like 500 sets
