Hi Guys,

I have been looking at a Spare wheel cover for my GU IV patrol. The one i seen on e-bay is the standard silver hardcover for the 2004- onwards model with 17" alloys. I have the 16" wheels, will this cover fit?

Cheers

Scott

Hi Matt,
Thanks for the advice but it would look a little silly in Glasgow :-). Great site and fantastic advice, in fact this is where i get all my questions on the patrol answered. Believe me i would love to come over and use the spare wheel cover but although we have enough points to come to Australia we got a rejected because my daughter has a replacemet heart valve. But hey the scotland is not the worse place to be.

Fair call. Maybe by sea one day and bring the Patrol with you. Best place in the world to 4Wding.

Scottcamp!! I have heard this before, I guess the government thinks she may be a financial burden somewhere down the track.. Somehow they dont seem to mind bringing miles of people in who dont want to work,nor learn to speak english and some nationalities that want to blow up our infrastructure. Maybe that says something about the brainpower of our politicians.. Michael

Hi Michael,
Its the same here in the UK, we did think we had a good chance as we have good jobs.

I design PCB boards and my wife is a teacher, both us would be working. But their reason was Rachel would cause the health service money. I guess they have a fair point, but i would hope that two people in employment would have contributed more. But there you go, i will have to make do with this forum.

One thing I have found is that the std soft wheel cover from a 2000 GU which was now fitted to a 2003 GU on BFG's 267/75/16's as a spare was that close to the panel that it started to rub against the paint. It was not a problem with the earler model and the carrier unit must be a tad smaller. The earlier wagon had a plastic or frp unit compared to the steel one on the later model. Could it be that Nissan have tried to alleviate the door cracking issues? Anyone else noticed that also? I plan to make a spacer from 5mm s/s plate to fix the issue.
