Quick question.
Do you accept members with 3 major problems?
1. My Defender is not living States side.
2. It is a 110 SW
3. It is sitting on modulars.

As noted earlier by Josh, I also bought my wheels by searching online through the auto salvage/breaker yard listings. In both cases, I was able to find decent (but not perfect) sets of five from 98 Disco LSEs.

The first set of five I bought ran me about $400 with shipping (and I had them painted black by a wheel repair guy) and the second set ran about $325 with shipping! (Those are still silver.) I am kind of a cheapskate, the only way I can rationalize to myself to have and hop-up cool cars and motorcycles.

In a few months I might be able to hook up a "boost-challenged" individual desiring membership. You'll just have to buy one (or both) of my trucks to go with them.

Vladimir is a sexy European lady

She flys over once a month for work and usually comes to our meet ups. She is not a cougar.

I have the tomb Raider Defender Boost Wheels and was wondering if I should keep them gray or i have them powder coated black. If anyone in NYC have photos of powder coated boost, please would you put up the photos?

Will you trade? Black for your grey?

I never thought about trading them. I might have to give it some consideration.

I'm looking the net trying to find out how much are the Tomb Raider Boost Wheels are worth. If they are a hot item or worth a lot, I might buy another set. I hear on that I could get them under $400.
