Rims/tyres wanted
« June 28, 2020, 07:25:20 »
Hi, haven't been here for a long while, I now have a 2017 GD, and I have 18 inch rims on it but I like to go for drives around the country so looking for some 16 inch wheels to fit so it's a bit more comfy. Located in Brisbane.

Thankyou, I don't need them for another month, but I will certainly get in touch with them.
I had the original wheels from my car, but sold them, I had thought that maybe someone still had some laying around, hence why I asked on here just in case :)

Wow.  Like I said I was seeing if anyone had a set at home and you needed to be a smart arse, and you're a moderator????
Last set I bought off someone was a set they had at home, not from a wrecker. I find your attitude to be quite rude and unnecessary to be honest, moderators are supposed to make sure people are nice to each other, not behave like that.

Sorry not trying to be rude but it’s amazing how many people ask the question here because most are to lazy to search for themselves.

Glad you’re sorted :)

The benefit of calling a wrecker works well as they generally search all the other wreckers for you.
