changed wheels and tyres

Love the look of my later style wheels with their now 255 55 20 tyres. Had a bit of bother getting the original wheels off, swollen nuts etc, so new nuts coming. I painted the metal backing plates with Black Hamerite, the callipers with calliper paint and the rear drums with metallic silver paint the sort you put on metal railings etc. Looking very smart now. I will probably paint the front drums when I change the wheel nuts. Couple of pictures for you have a look at. Thumbs Up



General view



Rear wheel, you can't really see how nice the hubs look from this angle, you need to be looking down on them a bit.


Front wheel

Mine are fitted with Pirelli Scorpion Verde in 255 55 20 size, which just fits in the spare wheel well.

Just as a side note warning, I changed my wheels in my garage, door closed garage heater on, suspension in off road, jacked up using the correct jacking points with my new sprinter Jack, all went lovely till I pressed the garage remote for the up and over door. !!! Censored , Censored , arsoles Embarassed the garage door opened, hitting and breaking the high brake light, bounced along the car roof, many dents and deep scratches Evil or Very Mad would you believe it in my panic to stop the door it when the into reverse and did the same damage again closing itself Censored
Cost me £480 to have the damage made good, not as bad as it could have been, I had quotes, in excess off £700. All good now and I still love my new wheels, not quite the bargain I had before my cock up.
