HOT WHEELS

Post by bones 851 on Tue Nov 17, 2009 11:21 pm

Hi folks, glad to say i'm back on the road again, leafspring fitted and cornering well again!!!, browsing e-bay earlier and noticed a blue x reg hijet with 15" alloys,(wheels being sold seperately), they look well smart, i never new you could fit such a large size wheel to the jet?. i struggled for ages to find 12" alloys for mine, and although i had sugestions of minilites, wolfrace and others it was difficult to get the pcd correct, a mech friend had tried a few but it took time with various spacers and things and in the end he had advised me to stick with sourcing 12", something to do with wheel alignment, tracking and arch space, anyway happy with what i've got but possible future projects could see me investigating "the big wheel", now who said size does'nt matter ha ha..

That van looks great in blue with the bull bar and the big wheels. Think mine is going to go that colour. I'm wondering what to do about a bull bar for mine, thining of maybe altering one from sportrak or vitara, or maybe making one from scratch.

shit, there was a bullbar! ...... if id known that id have put a bid in!
Mind you. adding a bull bar to my van will hike my insurance up! id have to wait 4 more months before i did that.. 1NCB and lower insurance!

It wasn't all that great, otherwise I would have bid!

Wheels were cool though.

I wouldn't have thought a bullbar would have much effect on the insurance? Is it a "performance modification"?!
