5 Boost Wheels with Tires from SoCal Truck

Selling my Defender Boost wheels with tires. Upgrade from your Freestyle wheels and increase the value of your Defender. These are the wheels to have on your Defender 90, 110 or 130. They will also fit Discovery and Range Rover Classics. Wheels are in good shape, only minor marks from wear and tires are Michelin Crosstrek with about 40-50% tire tread left and the spare is unused with the stock Michelin XPC. These are incredible sought after, rare and are a fantastic upgrade to any Defender/Discovery or RRC. I prefer not to ship them, these are located in Los Angeles. If you REALLY want them and need them shipped please contact me and we can discuss. I had planned on using these on an 87 110, but the sale fell through. These come up very rarely on eBay and when they do they usually do not have all 5, or don't have tires, or are VERY expensive. A great upgrade 5-wheel set with fine tires for $1000.

What are these called? They do look pretty rare. I would hold on to them, they can only go up in value.

As the title says they're Boost wheels. Fitted to late D1lse and some 97 Defenders

Hey! I have a 97 D90 and no boosts... Some bastard must have ripped me off and switcherooed to these ugly wolfs

You know what's funny... when searching for "defender boost wheels" on google, your truck is the 4th image that comes up on the search.

Sorry for the thread derailment, free bump for some rare wheels.

Nice! And ironically the photo doesn't show the boosts.

What size are the tires? Were they on a stock Discovery or something? How much with the tires removed?

ship costs will be calculated from zip 90025 to where-ever, and by who-ever the buyer decides, ship cost is the responsibility of the buyer.

This is what's called an "offer" which you are obviously free to decline. Of course you might want to search the classified sections here to see what normal prices for used boosts are. (and the prices here are inflated sometimes...)

Your ad went south when you stated your item was rare. You could list Noah's Ark here and get laughed off the forum if you describe it as rare...that said, Boosts are not rare as every Defender in NYC has a winter/summer set as do a lot of junkyard Discos.

Oh, and don't mind Roverman1. He never actually follows through with his offers.

It is in bad taste and against forum rules to crap on someone's sale thread. Just trying to help you out. GLWS.
