15 Inch Wheels
« on: February 19, 2012, 09:00:42 PM »
my beddy is getting close to being finished, it's at the stage now that I can drive it. but...
I need some decent back wheels for her. Has any one got some 15inch HQ stud pattern wheels
they want to sell? jelly beans or modified HQ stockies would be awesome, but anything really,
15x8, 15x9 or 15x10. I've been checking ebay and gum tree every day for over a year now and still no luck.

what search terms are you using, i've seen some SWEET 15" rims going on ebay lately
I search 15" chev, or 15" hq or holden, sometimes you need to narrow the search to cars,bikes,boats

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/280818151355?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649
these were a bargain

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/260933137486?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649
these were over priced but awesome

these are still available and NEW

thanks for the tips, that isn't the exact search term I use, so I'll try that.
back space is my biggest problem, I must be looking for an odd offset.

I like them, but the back space is no good.

gday numnuts, im sure u would have someone in adelaide but in melbs there is a company that can make wide 15in chromies to whatever offset u like... im thinking about doing it with my van after my 14in tyres run out... it will cost u about 220 a wheel so round a grand all up but the best part is u can get the offset made perfect to fit inside the wheel arch... the co. is ajax wheels if ur interested....  take it easy.

I have wheels now, I borrowed the Centerlines from my HQ, they looked good but the rears were not the right offset for my diff
but luckily a pair of 10" came up on ebay and had 275x60's but on them, they fill the guards really well.
just need taller tyres for the front wheels and then I can call that job done.

except my HQ now has no front wheels  :D
