I've been craving a set of speedline sl434's for a while and have been waiting for another group buy on here. What do you need to set up a group buy? Is it a case of just ringing speedline direct and asking how many sets they would need to sell and me getting a list together on here, or is it a lot more difficult than that? The 2 main problems I see are getting the money to the company and people backing out.

Speedline only sell through UK distributors I think.  Baz Thorn was able to get them in the past.  I know Revolution Motorstore in the north east can get them too.

iirc Godspeed have a set on the shelf and can supply more, unsure if its motorsport or braking you need to speak to but they run from the same unit.

Might be worth trying Carl Chambers? I know he got some other Speedline wheels

I think theres a reason behind that.

I can pass on contact details for him if you need them.

I think I paid around £120-130per wheel back in 2009/10 direct from speedline corse in Telford, so I don't think they've gone up that badly!

I managed to get a set of wheels, I got them from Baz in the end, he was an absolute legend. Paid him on the Sunday night and the wheels were with me on the Tuesday, shame I'm not having the car on the road until next year really want them fitted. If anyone was interested in getting a set I can pm you contact details for him. Downside is since I ordered mine the price has gone up slightly.
