Rang heaps of weckers looking for 16x7 rims want 3 for my trailer and 1 spare for my 4x4 had a look at bearepairs today they have brand new ones for $97 each they look like the standard 15inch sunrasyia rim tried it on the terracan fitted perfectly but was hoping not to spend quite that much though so if you come across any let me know as I will have 4 what I thought would be a cheap exercise is now appearing to be a dear one to convert my trailer to the 6 stud pattern is about $200 with new axle and hubs now looks like I need to spend another $800 for tyres and rims owell thats life But in the long run its not too much more as I need to buy 3 new tyres for the trailer $300 1 new rim for the 4x4 $120 new tyre to fit $165 and still need to do the bearings on the trailer total cost $650 as oposed to $1000 but at the end of the day which is the best option having the same tyres and stud pattern on both allowing me to carry only 3 spares in total for both or carring 4 spares 2 for the trailer and 2 for the car

Tim,

I've dug out my notes and the bloke who makes the wheel carriers that fit into your tow hitch is Sandy at Aust 4 wd Specialists, 9729 4899. Around $500 - $700.

Tim,
I am running the risk of being accused of being pedantic, but a few bits of punctuation would make your post easier to read (they are the keys just to the right of the'M' key). If tht's too hard, just start a new line for each new train of thought (hit the enter key three to the right of th 'L' key). :-)
I reckon the best option is to make the trailer wheels compatible with the car, so even when you aren't lugging the trailer you have several spares for the car, even a complete spare set.
The worst case scenarion is trashing all your spares at some remote location, then losing one more tyre on the car. At least you can move a wheel from the trailer to the car, leave the trailer, drive on to get repairs/new tyres etc, go back for the trailer. If they don't match you are relying on a lift coming along.

There is a guy in Shepparton (Vict) who has heaps of second hand rims, he is tyre retailer, but has kept all the rims people have traded, he is worh a call. I was after 3 6JJ rims for my camper (same rim as the earlier GQ/Mavericks) and he charged e $20 per rim (with a tyre on them that was pretty ordinary).

Try Lenons Tyre Centre - 19 Benalla Road Shepparton (03) 5821 4766 or email lennonstyres@aol.com

Well I pickup a set of steel split rims off a LC for $80 complete with tyres tried them on the Terracan before I brought them and they fitted like a charm so I now have 3 spares for either the car or trailer. So now the trailer goes in to get modded to fit the LC rims tomorrow and once this is done I am hoping that it will now tow level.
So thanks for all the advice
