Hi All, 

For those that followed my 2019 Gen.4 SZ5 build thread, you'll remember I painstakingly refurbished and raptor coated a set of genuine Suzuki steel wheels for my zook. I fitted some brand new BF Goodrich A/T K02 Tyres which to date have covered less than 5k miles (on a lightweight Jimny that's practically un-used - as others have said you can expect to get in excess of 50k miles out of them on a Jimny).

My circumstances have now changed and I've put the SZ5 alloys and duellers on the little zook, due to having a second dedicated workhorse/off-roader. I'm looking to sell my x4 steel wheels and tyres and I thought advertising them here first in hope of selling them to a good home.

Tyres cost £115 a corner new, the wheel refurbishment (process can be seen on my build thread) cost £80 per wheel.

I'm looking for around £450, which will include an iron gates TPMS bypass module (needed for any gen.4 install). Location is 1 minute from Junction 20 of the M5, collection is preferred, I may consider delivery at buyers expense if required.

Thanks all for the interest, these have now been SOLD on a first come first serve basis to Roger Fairclough. I'll look forward to seeing them in action on his lovely SZ5 Gen.4!

Info. so far. Everything checks out apart from the TPMS simulator. Don't get me wrong on this item, I haven't tried to fit it yet as prior commitments mean I haven't fitted the new wheels, but if this device is more a hassle than a help I will fit proper wheel senders.
So my question is, does anyone have any knowledge of the somewhat cheaper ones on the internet? The genuine Suzuki are £145 plus vat which I consider extortion. I could probably source a set from a damaged late gen.£ or gen.4.
Any comments?

Roger

Roger the iron gates bypass unit is a bit of a pain to 'synchronise' for the first time. Martin can vouch for that as he helped me test and configure mine.. once working it is reliable. Arguably not as reliable as purpose made TPMS sensors mounted to each wheel! Happy to chat over the phone if you need any help with the bypass unit.

Roger, I bought a set of 4 off Ebay for £30 and they work. I got them to put in my alloys that are in the shed. I have just checked the same seller has these listed  Ebay Link  with the same P/N as the ones I bought.

Update.

Tyres had 10.5 mm tread so a nominal wear rate to be expected from B.F.G. Actual tread on the road is 173mm as apposed to the original tyres at 135mm. This equates to an increase of 28.4%, not to be sniffed at.

On the road is interesting because they are as quiet as the originals and have the benefit of less squirm and more precise control. I was not expecting that.

I did an acceleration test using 40 - 60 mph in top as a practical figure and achieved 11.5 seconds original tyres and 13 seconds with B.F.Gs. Again, I was expecting a bigger gap.

Finally the TPMS gizmo. I was expecting problems with this but I fitted it where DAGZOOK suggested and drove for 6 miles before the orange lights came on at which point I returned home and parked up for 45 minutes. Another drive for 4 miles and the orange lights went off and all reverted to normal.

I breathed a sigh of relief and drove home. So far so good.

Bye the way, the batteries in the unit registered 0.7 volts so I replaced them.
