    Owner update April 2016


    ============================================


    Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom Owner David Lovatt, aka Monstertrucker since 14th May 2011.
    Previous owner was Paul Hayashi in Luton, Hertfordshire, (presumably after the one/s who took this pic as it looked newer here than when I bought it minus the wing mirror and with worn out side decals from too much polishing. Link me to new ones please?).
    Rims are Enkei Super Violence split anodised in red. Unsure of spec's but will try to update.
    Tires are now Cooper Discoverer H/T but not in this photo I don't think. Spec's as above.
    Stock height

    Stock chrome wheels finally pealed away so this was another option - new shoes and a detail -









    a little trimming for the front tire (in front and back) and it just fits - terra grappler G2 285 60 r18 tire for $163.00 ea - and chaos 18x9 both from discount tire direct on sale for $101 each rim - mounted ballanced and shipping included !

    18" Worx Triad & all-season tires. Posted these a while back, but not on this thread.





    I really need better pics. I also got it tinted since this, and it looks way better.

    American Racing AR893 Mainline Wheels

    I'm selling my set of 4 of these wheels I used to have on my VX. . The wheels are in great condition but the tires are shot.

    I came across an awesome original wheel set I couldn't refuse.

    Looks sharp, like the rims!
    I had that same bullbar, but mine was quite a bit closer to the front. I had the mounts from Tone, the original guy that distributed these with custom made mounts specifically for the VX.
    Did you have custom mounts made?

    hood is a little off due to my sons accident - and the bar was never close to the bumper with my tone brackets ? don't know why - and this westin bar only lasts about 3 years then I need a new one due to rusting. I'm on my 3rd bar

    That's the spare receiver add-on. And I like that I can put it UNDER the superbumper. Can't tow with it, but it will hold a bike-rack or anything up to 300 lbs or so. I don't doubt it could probably hold a 2-person bumper hammock though.

    I'm bummed that I can't get the exterior line-x'd to match my seats though.

    Anyone looked into these Stealth Custom Series wheels? I've been dreaming on the F5's 17X8.5 -10mm offset and 4.5" backspacing . I'm worried they'll stick out way too far. Wondered what everyone thought of them...

    I had -2 offset on my Borbets and 265/60-18s with stock height, no lift.....and quite a bit of trimming. Had to pound the rear part of the front wheel well and pound back the bolt there....and cut out most of the fender liner, and they stuck out about 1/2" from the wheel well. With a -10 you're looking at at least the same amount of trimming and sticking out even further.

    Good to know. I cringe when I think about BFH'n the rear of the front fender but maybe it's not too bad...? They also make a 16X8 with 0 offset and 4.5"BS. according to 1010tires offset calculator the 16" wheel will stick out 51mm more than the stock 18" that I'm running now. These SCS wheels look so good i just don't know if it's worth it.

    There was a good amount of BFH work! Plus I had to have my sliders cut down about 1" on the front. The stock rims are +38 and of course the stock rim with the stock tire size does not stick out at all, so that 51mm won't stick out that amount, it will be less. A 0 offset is a little better. The stock rims are 7" wide and my Borbets were 8", so that CAN also factor in a bit with the wider rubber, depending on the tire size you go with.

    What are the sliders? The tube steel? I was hoping to go with 33/11.5r16. I run the OME 912's and have been looking to add the daystar 1.5" spring spacer and more tbar crank...maybe even trying my hand at the diff drop. Someday i think I'd like to go 35's but it seems like a lot of work.
