Well i'd rather swap for foam mtb grips in fairly good condition.

Plus i'm not Halfords.

I actually cut these down and use them as foam grips! Cut to side and stick well with hairspray, if they're the Raleigh ones.

I do mine by inserting a steel socket in there and cutting around with a blade. Then I push the socket flush with the end and chamfer off with 600 grit paper.

I prefer a slightly wider grip than normal, which looks like this:-
