15" alloys and 31" BFG tyres

#1 by jay , Mon Dec 03, 2012 4:16 pm

I bought these a few weeks ago for £350 although after trying to fit them i realised i need at least 16's, dam!

Tyres have covered 500 miles from the previous owner, he only sold because his head gasket blew and he scrapped the car, he said he paid £700 for the tyres last winter and were left lying in his garage for 10 months before he decided to sell them to me.

Still at least 10mm of tread across the tyres, the alloys could be done with a tidy up but apart from that its a bargain!

I was planning on running the wheels over winter then taking them apart in the spring and reconditioning them back to new.

If i could get my money back on them it would be great but £350 ono, could deliver via courier, not sure on how much it would cost but i would imagine £60 based upon delivery prices of wheels on ebay.

Am guessing they don't clear the brake callipers, after 01 the trucks had bigger brakes. 15 inch steels sometimes fit but alloys tend to catch

Exactly mate, they do fit my truck but there is only around 2mm clearance on the front calipers. I believe pre 2001 trucks will have more clearance as they have smaller calipers. I did consider sourcing smaller calipers but figured bigger is better as they're not the lightest of trucks and every little helps lol.

Just bought a set of 16" steel wheels with Insa Turbo Dakar tyres so they should help me through the snow lol.
