Exclamation Interests For Wheel Swap

G'day, I am trying to find anybody interested in swapping wheels with me, I'm in need of some 18" wheels with fairly decent tread as I'm on my way back to Darwin via Warooka in S.A. My wheels in question are 20" speedy jaguars with 225/35's, all with near new tyres, all replaced in Townsville last week and one being replaced tomorrow, while these wheels are fine around towns and perfect highways, they are doing me absolutely no favours over these distances and shoddy country roads. One rim has a decent bit of rash around the lip from the missus :/ and the rest have at least one graze on them from I have no idea. I'm not sure how to post pics as I'm doing this with my phone, but if there are any serious interests I'm more than happy to txt pics of each wheel or meet up. I'm staying in beachmere until the 4th jan, then we'll be on our way again. My car to suit is a 07 BF II XR8. Cheers, Mick.

Default Re: Interests For Wheel Swap

might pay to go to a bigger tyre eg- 245/30-20, 225/35-20 seems way to small to me
