I thought he had them hand woven in the village by an artisan weaver from his chest and back fur ...

I brought my Boost in May of 2012. 16 inch Boost rims. If you find them for 400-500 pounds, SNATCH them as fast as possible and run like a thief.

For 500- 600 pounds you can get a set of Chinese made Boost wheels. I think they spell it Boosst (lol). However, you're not going to get Land Rover Boost rims for that price. There's plenty of fake Boost and Freestyle rims. Take your chance if you want but I don't like fake items.

He's talking second hand US prices in dollars. $500 will get you a set of genuine boosts as fitted to 98 discoveries.

I thought something was up. There were numerous marked and unmarked cars flying west on the Belt and Southen State as I was making my way home from JFK this evening. Sad indeed.

I got mine off a 300tdi in Kent. It was not $750 it was 750 pounds. I'm not sure about the rims that are fitted to USA model Discovery's. I'm talking about Boost rims that are on Defenders- 300tdi's

Nicely said Jeff. I think I'll get a Polo shirt with the sports man facing the Hourse tail (lol). It takes just 1 pothole to tell the difference. However, you're right about the Land Rover Thread.

Ronnie, with your new wheeling prowess, I suggest you just skip ahead to these.

you ommited drink beer while watching the worlds roughest table dancers ... as your tires are moved from the old wheels to the boosts ... This is what differentiates NYC Boost club from regular LR owners clubs.
