Looking for "Boost" alloys

Anyone know where I can find some "Boost" style alloy wheels? I see them on Ebay at John Craddock, but I think shipping would be a ton.

Steal them from a 98 Disco. You could also check locally with English-Swedish or Coventry West. My buddy has a set the I continue to threaten to steal.

There's a guy on Discoweb selling a set. Best offer is at $100 each for 5. I too like the look of them on the D90, but not enough to part with that kind of coin. Mark

Did a quick check and had over 100 listed from different wrecking yards across the country from $45 to $200 per wheel depending on condition. If you go this route, it would be prudent to confirm that they are factory and not reconditioned/reproductions. Or if you plan to have them blasted and powdercoated you may not care...

On a side note, I have 5 "dished" alloys that have been sitting in my garage for a couple years from my Disco. Similar to the Boost. They look like this:

If you are interested, drop me a line.

I have a customer with a 98 Disco that just got bobtailed with 35's and toy axles. It had Boost alloys on it. The gentleman currently is running them on a 96 Disco, but they can be for sale as he has another set of wheels and the 96 Disco is for sale, too. PM me your info and I will pass it on to him. He bought the 98 Disco to cut up and did not really wheel it prior to taking a plasma cutter to it...the wheels are in nice shape.
