    New Wheels

    Hello all, thought I'd post my first upgrade on "Bownie".
    New wheels and tyres, decided to go the road burner instead off-road lift and big mud tyres. They are 20x9 Mamba's with 275x35x20 tyres.

    Next mod will be wrapping my ebay mirrors with carbon effect film from 3M.
    Oh yeah nearly forgot, whilst change the wheels I manage to shear one of the bolts, can anyone tell me part nos for replacements and where I might buy them from. Is it OK to run with 5 bolts.....

    Only just seen this! Did you get a wheel stud? I picked one up from Milner off road, but be sure to get a new nut as the outer thread size was a little different. Dont know why!

    Should be the same stud as the Trooper of the same year. You should be able to find them at any parts store with that information. If not, get ahold of Merlin at St. Charles Isuzu: 1-800-727-8066

    I think no wheels will ever match up to the awesome uniqueness of that color. The rims aren't my style, but if you like it that's what matters! Congrats!

    Oh, and where should I send the bottle of Back to Black, Refinish Restorer, Trim Shine, etc? Give that cladding some love man!

    I was a bit concerned with the colour before I bought the car, but it ended up being the reason why I bought the VX in the end.....Your right about the cladding its on my job list......

    I like the wheels.

    You could go up a couple sizes, to a 50-series tire, and it would take some of the harshess from the ride. (and it helps "fill in" the wheel well a little more)
