Help with new wheels...

Anybody know where I can buy these? (Or have them made?)


I have found the knock off LR versions here:
http://www.wheelsandcaps.com/new_www...ODEL=DISCOVERY
Though they are available in a lot of places.

I've read 20 pages of threads about wheels and couldn't find anything.

I have this idea to anodize the diamond plate to match the grey color of these wheels.....

Hi,

They are Land Rover "Boost" alloys, in Pewter grey. They were fitted to the Tomb Raider special edition over here in the UK.

best regards

James

They look like boosts, and they definitely aren't deep dish's. I am not positive that they aren't another style that is similar to the boost though.

You can just powder coat them whatever color you want.
