I have a set of what I think to be Gulf Coast Rovers black steel wheels with some pretty old BFG All Terrain tires. These came on a Disco I bought and I went a different route. The wheels have a back spacing that makes the tires stick out a bit more than stock. The wheels themselves are in great shape with the only issue being the paint is worn off from where a socket has been used to remove the lugs. The 3 of the tires have good tread and 2 are pretty worn. They are all dry rotted, so I would recommend replacement. I've taken them on a few trips and they were fine with no balance issues.

Asking $350

Pickup in 90066. I'm happy to help with RURR.

Sorry for the shitty pictures.

I should add that this is a set of 5 and that I'm open to offers.

Just think, you could build a D1 just like all the old timers here on DWeb!

Knock the tires off, any idea how bad shipping would be? What size are the tires btw, 15 or 16, can't quite read the size?

Glad you asked. I had assumed they were 16" but they are actually 15".

I shipped five Series wheels from NY to CA, both business addresses, and it was about $60 per wheel.

Any plans on going to Briggs's house before the end of October?
We might head up to Tahoe, but I'm not sure if we'll be heading over to his house. I also don't know what vehicle we'll take, but I can let you know. Briggs just texted me today to see if I'd be around next weekend, so maybe he is heading down here.

He's flying down here.

Would you want the tires too? It would be more practical for me to bring them up there if it is just the wheels you want.

I won’t be back in the US until the 13th or so so I’ll leave you some local gin from the U.K. at casa de Briggs for your troubles that you can grab the next time you’re there if you and your lady like gin.

We love gin! Make me an offer on the wheels. I can't imagine the tires are worth much, but I'm easy.
