I'm going to order a set from them too.

There are also these which should work too
http://www.ebay.com/itm/4-NEW-OEM-CH...47275737&rt=nc

Once the new rims are fitted to the car after a couple of minutes driving the TPMS signal is picked up and it all works as before (apparently)

I bought a set from the first link (wheel_man) too. He was very helpful in shipping them quickly, and would have sold me only 2 if I wanted. In the end I bought 4 anyway because by the time you include the shipping the price difference wasn't significant. I put one in my steel,spare, and one in the 5th Laredo wheel I bought as a second spare. Haven't put either of them on yet though. He'll also do a very fast ship if you want to pay for it.

Re: Off Road 18"s

After much reading and discussion I've decided to run with the BFG 265/65R18's. They have 26.5mm greater rolling diameter to the stock tyres, so should fit comfortably. I've run these on all my cars (BFG AT TA's) and am happy with them. I've been quoted in the vicinity of $450 - $550 per tyre, however found them for $360, the only drawback being this is in Tempe NSW and I'm in Melbourne. Will try to use this online ad to leverage a better price down here.

My question is, what are you going to do with the spare. Its a 245/65R18 which looking on the BFG site they don't do. What are my options? Cheers.

Re: Off Road 18"s

That is an 802mm diameter tyre I think. You will need to try to find a tyre that matches that diameter, but isn't more than 255 wide. You might get away with a 265 tyre, under the floor, but I doubt it in that diameter.

Re: Off Road 18"s

Actually, I think someone else on the forum has reported the BFG 265/65R18 does fit in the spare wheel well....

You find in Sydney a lot of tyre places just order from Tempe direct as they get a wholesale price. Your local store might be able to do something similar

Re: Off Road 18"s

By direct I mean the tyre shops call them and get it deliverrd but you can also order online yourself or do the same.

They do a lot of parallel importing of tyres so undercut what even the tyre shops can buy it for.

They seem to always be the cheapest for things but it's a bit "hectic bro" going there

Is the price quoted supply, wheel balance and fit?
