Have found a crack in one wheel current gu patrol 70000k rang dealer no worries replaced all five rims but im not fussed on the appearance of replacements,the valve is unprotected unlike originals,any way rang nissan spoke to lance he said can get credit towards cost of alloys just call local dealer. the dealer advises this is not the case i can only have what they have given me.

will contact nissan hq tomorrow again but i was wondering if anyone else has had any experience,the dealer advised he has changed 6 sets so far.

thankyou and happy travels.

I assume these are the Nissan alloy wheels you are referring to here?

Smashed the hell out of mine, and they are still ok. Maybe I should keep an eye on them.

It is a common issue with the GU's...
They are only hair line cracks, but theres a lot on this on the Patrol list, ages ago.

Brian,
I got a set replaced too, but in my case Nissan supplied the original set (as previous ones).
When I questioned Nissan about the cracking (I asked if they would crack again) they said that the manufacturer assured them they wouldn't as it was a manufacturing fault...
Now they are replacing them with the DX model ones, which makes the car look DX (lower spec) and as you said the valves are unprotected....
I would liek to know what Nissan head office tells you about the credit for alloys...

I was one of the first to have cracked GU rims :D

Nissan use a different steel rim now, (which is only on the DX)

www.offroader.com.au/crackedgurims/ shows the cracks.

I got 5 new rims, and was REAL happy with the new ones.

Vale protectiion maybe slightly less, but the rims are a LOT stronger,and a Lot stronger than a roh. They also don't hold mud in the lip like the old style ones do.

Allows are $250 Eacn, the new steel ones are $350 each from nissan, hence they will give you alloy's cause they are cheaper

Some people got the Original ones, depends what stock the dealer / State Parts people had at the time.

I wasn't happy to get another set of rims which were faulty, so forced them into the heavy duty ones instead. They went really well too :D
