Cheapest Place for Rims in Brisbane

Looking to get a set of 18" ROH Fury's on low profile rubbers, fitted/balanced/etc, and just wondering from peoples experience if they can recommend a place in Brisbane which are pretty cheap and do decent work.

Places like Bob Jane are wayyyy overpriced, and fat from decent thanks to the apprenteces they hire to save some bucks.

I've checked out Quickfit near my work at Upper Mt Gravatt which aren't too bad.

Thanks

Re: Cheapest Place for Rims in Brisbane

You sure you want those ROH rims? As I have a set of original 18in XR8 BA rims for sale, if your keen $1000.00 with rubber (90% worn)...

Other then that if you call around to some of the actual importers, sometimes they will do you a cash deal with you... gotta get the right person though cuz its not in there best interest to sell to you, but I saved a packet doing this... Thats about all I can suggest.

Cheers

I'm interested, but won't have the money for a couple months.

My plan is to save up enough for a new set, and then wait and look around for a second hand set (don't mind BA XR8's) and get them if something takes my fancy.

I'd actually much prefer second hand rims.

Re: Cheapest Place for Rims in Brisbane

I got AU2, so offset is apparently the same as the BA so XR8 rims should be fine.
