Swop Shop!

Post by tim leech » Wed Oct 03, 2007 10:34 am

Does anyone have a set of speedline alloys (any sort) or a set of the wider steel BX Gti 8v wheels with the 185/60 tyres AND trims (gti etc) they want to swop for the very tidy 205 Gti (1.6) alloys on my BX GTi. (set of 5). If you supply me with steels and trims I will swop the bolts!

Regarding tyres im happy to swop them over if needed or if you have a decent set? as mine have 2 new Pirellis/2 reasonable budgets on the back and the spare is split.

No 165/70s please!

I wont put any money to it sorry!,

Tell me what you have!!

Failing that would be anyone be interested in the 205 alloys as a outright purchase?

What condition are the pug rims in mate?
I assume they are the 14" rims?

Dont have any 6J's spare at the moment, but thats a situation that changes fairly often..

I do have a set of 5.5J speedlines, but they will need rubbing back and painting since ally corrosion has pickled them a touch.

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

What would you prefer mate? 5.5J or 6J?

Alas I dont have any bolts left now though.
I cuold recon the 5.5J's and spray them if you want those rather than 6J's??

If not, I should have some more 6J's in anthracite before xmas...

Doc ive just remembered, I have 4 steel wheels round the back of my flat, which I took off the TXS :oops: will swop the tyres over and either sell the alloys on ebay or if anyone else wants to buy them?

All I need now is some steel wheel bolts! Anyone got any?

Ta!

Jon, if you have 16 alloy wheel bolts I'd be very interested indeed.... and Tim, I have plenty of steel wheel bolts if you need a set.
this might be a signature

Thank u david, the problem is just fetching them. Theres a local alloy wheel specialist who provided me with a set of alloy bolts for my TXD when I fitted speedlines, so he may have some steel bolts.

If you change your mind about alloys instead of steels Tim I have a very nice set of aftermarket 6J alloys for a BX with matching (excellent) Goodyear low profiles.
