Thanks, never even thought that premiums might increase, as I would be changing from standard steel wheels, to the a standard fit alloy [I am after all looking at Citroen alloys] so why would the premium be different as they sold the car new with either steel or alloy wheels?
On a 2008 XTR the alloys were an option, together with tps. It would increase the value of the car so could in theory increase the insurance premium.
However, different companies take different views. It is always best to declare as they will then be covered should you have an accident. I have always declared the options on mine but they have never charged extra.

I went from the standard steel wheels to MK1 C5 alloys - no change in insurance, then to non-standard Fox alloys with different tyre size on , still no change.

my insurance went up £35, was told this is down to the extra costs of replacing a wheel, mine are genuine citroen alloys
