Got excited the other day when a bloke at work asked me if I wanted 5 split rims for my 80 but soon lost intrest coz he wanted $400 I will be going to Perth soon and was going to try and chase some up but what are they worth? I would have thought about $40 each. In case any body is wondering I want them to mount 12 -14 ply crossplys on for bushwork COZ I AM SICK OF WRECKING TYRES AND GETTING FLATS and that is without even getting near the spots i want to go. Using these tyres last year we only managed to ruin 1 between 2 vehicles and that was using them primarily in extreme cross country (bushbashing) conditions

Davoe,

Mate, I still run the skinnies on my 75 series and am always on the look out for some spare rims. If you shop around you should still be able to find some for $50 each but even they probably won't be much chop. I work in the mines too and we still run alot of 75 series vehicles and hence the demand for them is still there but there is very little supply due to the new 5 stud rims (What were Toyota thinking!!) But yes $100 is a bit rich. In a few years time I'll probably have a look at converting my cruiser to the 5 stud setup and then being able to pick-up the new type split sets for bugger all. Good luck.

Cheers,
Hughesy

Try the tyre dealers we used to run the nissan patrol rims and tyres on our HZJ 75 you might also try the nissan dealer as alot of them change them to "fats" and have the spits left. (used yards as well).

Hi Davoe,

I have 4 split rims off my old 80 series. 3 are bare and on the 4th I have a 7.5R16 Dunlop tyre that was a second spare for the 80. My original idea was to use the rims on my van, but as I have the GU now they are just gathering dust and have done so for many years now.

The tyre/rim is now used as my 2nd spare on my GU, but have actually yet to use it. You are welcome to have the 3 rims and if you want the 4th, I just need a rim to use as a 2nd spare on my GU. I am in Perth if you are interested.

Cheers

Captain

PS. Also have a frame to mount a winch on the front of an 80 series between the chasis rails, free to a good home.

Sounds good I have 1 splittie as a second spare so that would gve me 4 which is probably all i would need as I would still have 2 radials as spares. also I often just pull the tyre off when i get a flat, fix it and put it straight back on. takes about 1/2 hour with splitties including reinflating. Also you only need to take donuts instead of the whole spare as tyre fitting is easy with splitties. I will send you a MM if I end up in Perth this break TA

Hi locallaw - your welcome to the winch mount. Its not a full bar but a cradle that bolts onto the front chassis behind the bumper/roo bar with the fairlead bolting onto the roo bar. This one fits a Ramsay 8000lb winch, but would easily take a different size by redrilling the holes. Email me on "mpeaccock at bigpond dot net dot au" to organise things, I can send a pic if you want.

Davoe - No worries, either member message or email me using the above address.

Cheers

Just bought four from a local tyre place (1st one I tried) for $25 each. Virtually brand new - they had a shed full of them from people who change over to 'fats'.
