Wanted - Steel Rims was created by louchy
Hello All,

I am on the hunt for a set of steel rims for my Jimny.

If anyone has just rims, or a set of rims fitted with AT's or MT's then please get in touch. I am happy to travel to come and collect.

Thanks,
Chris.

Good luck in your search.

I thought about steel wheels for my Jimny, there are a few sets for sale on ebay, but many have highway tread on them or some tyres I didn't want and by the time you have changed the tyres and refurbished the wheels (many seem in need of a re-spray) it could be cheaper to get new rims (from £60 each online).

I went for used alloy wheels in the end, perhaps not as good for off road or M/T but perfect for what I wanted and easier to refurbish/won't rust.

I am in the same position as you, most on eBay are not suitable, ideally a set of steels with MT’s fitted would be perfect, but otherwise I will probably end up buying some new ones from Jimnybits, but then you have to pay for tyre fitting etc. and it gets expensive!

I’ll just keep an eye out on here for the minute, and bit the bullet at some point

There are also these from  Raptor 4x4 , they are only 1/2 " wider than standard wheels as of memory the Jimnybits ones are 1" wider.

Ohhh nice, thanks! I hadn't seen those.

Could be a good option.

Cheers,
Chris.
