Hey guys, i'm gonna pick up some 17" steelies of a territory to fit onto my eb coz i recon they look sweet, way better than the territory 17" alloys anyway. $200- for a set without tyres a good price?

Also Whats the going price for hub adaptors and where do i get them? Im from SA so will prolly have to get them posted.

I know the adaptors are a bit dodgey, but willing to take the chance, can anybody reccomend a good set?

Thanks

Whats the weight.
Wouldn't they be pretty heavy as need to be pretty strong for the weight of the terri.

May look good for price but handling will suffer and will wear susspension out quicker as more unsprung weight.

A better option maybe to get some 16" gtr skyline (5 spoke) rims as same pattern but will need spacer's as well.

I had a set of these on a 351w TD Corty I owned, looked good to.

They cost me $300 with 2 good tyre's and 2 just legal, I bought them from a importer.


Another option would be the BMW alloy pursuit rim's, can't recall if where 15's or 16's though.

These I purchased from a wheel engineerer on the gold coast for $250 and that was him supplying the 4 rim's and changing the stud pattern.
Super light high quality rim when I had tyre's fitted the guy doing the balancing asked what they where as they didn't even require a weight for balance (mine you they looked pretty new like as if someone bought car and had alloy aftermarket's fitted straight up), the guy replied that's Bmw quality for ya.

I was also shocked and though he was trying to rip me in not balancing them until he showed me.

The offset will also require a spacer.
These where also on my corty.

Corty had xy disk front and 9" falcon stud rear.
