Got a great deal this week on a set of 2018 RR type 1065 20" wheels. These are 50 mile take off wheels in sparkle silver, theres not a mark on them and picked them up for $375 for a complete set of 4. They are going on my 06 L322 shortly, hopefully before we get our first good snow storm. I need to swap out the 433Mhz TPMS sensors and I just ordered a set of 275/55/R20 Cooper ZEON LTZ tires for them (that hurt) but I got those at 215 a piece so even that isn't to bad, just hope they fit without out to much massaging of the fender liners.

Lets see other deals people have got over the years.

Mark,

Nice way to end the year on such a high note.

I'm sure you already know that it's possible to reset the wheel/tire settings using SDD to correct for any potential speed/trip measurement changes if the total circumference of your new wheel and tire combo is different than the existing setup.

Happy New Year,

Rob

Yes, I do know that, the new ones are 1.7" larger in diameter than stock (29.1 old, 31.8 new) which is about 9% larger in radius, but my speedometer already reads about 3 or 4% high, so the adjustment won't be to bad.

The 37's got here yesterday for the Disco I'm tinkering with. Those were some chunks of rubber!
Not as bad as the 425/65 22.5's I run on my steers on the truck, but still a chunk.

37's, are you trying to make it float across water crossings like a raft? It's a bunch for road tires, that little tiny wheel and tire on the left is a 205/45/17 setup, and there are 2 new front struts, and one air bag on the right side of the pile, and they only come up to the third tire in the pile. Putting the TPMS sensors in tonight and getting the first 2 mounted (can't fit four loose tires and wheels in the truck at the same time) and the other two tomorrow AM , plus I don't want the tire place mounting them on the truck if I have to clearance the liners. I can do that at home.

I had to go rob my kids pickup to fit the 4 loose wheels and tires in. Otherwise it would have been 2 vehicles to get them there, or 2 trips.

Well they are on, only possible rubbing spots are in the front wheelwells with the tires turned full lock. The 47mm backspacing the stock 2018 RR wheels seem to solve any clearance issues with the front air bags or their pins and the right rear wheelwell bump for the fuel fill line. Probably have 3/8 to 1/2 inch clearance from the air bag alignment pin and 1/2 to 3/4" clearance from the fuel fill bump out. We'll see how it goes, now I've got to drive it about 80 miles so I'll check for any rubbing when I get back (unless I hear it while driving). Heres a couple of picts.
