The other day I bought a fantastic set of steel wheels for my 460 with tires fitted and balanced all brand new from Tires Direct. I personally think they're nicer than the original steels.

Re: Steel Wheels

Any chance more info/pics? Price, what tyre etc. Mine are looking very jaded (having previously been silver sprayed). Have been thinking of painting them black as cheapest option and maintenance on tight budget. Also as 'working' motor not overly concerned about some details (such as maintaining a showroom appearance, besides long gone for that), and painting tyres seems easiest, just slap on a coat of Hammerite?

Cheers,

Stewart

Re: Steel Wheels

A picture does spell a thousand words! Just in case you are unsure, here is an example of some steel and rubber:

1. Take pic
​2. Load pi on to Pc (I do desk top)
3. go to 'reply to comment'
4. at the bottom you will see 'Attach files to this comment'
5. Press the 'Choose file' then select it off your desk top
6. Then hit 'save'
7. then it should be 'Bob is your fathers brother' and it should appear

Re: Steel Wheels

I was previously running General SAG 750R16, but they were hideous on the motorway.

Tyres direct has been selling these wheels since Christmas and on Landrover wheels they do wheel tyre deals, so I called them up and they gave me several options from budgets to BF Goodrich, both A/T and Mud Terrain.

The wheels where called Dotz Dakar steel wheels and they were about £279.99 for 4.

I however bought x4 245/75R16 Fedima Frontera A/T on Dotz Steel wheels, fitted, ballanced and delivered for £565

Re: Steel Wheels

I rather like your old steel wheels. Are they for sale? (without tyres).  I've got a spare set of standard 463 alloys - don't suppose they are of any interest by any chance.  I pass through your area every few weeks.

Re: Steel Wheels

Only mentioned the alloys it because I can't work out whether the blue one in the background is a 460 or 463.
