Steel Rims

7 posts in this topic

Hello All. I know that the offset is different between the 2 rims but anything else different. I have a set of steel rims with snowy installed for a 451 that where given to me. But we just bought a 450. Is it just the rear rims with the different offset?

I think I will leave that one alone 😳

ok I guess I will find out if the rim dia are the same when I pick up the car today. 

I will have at least a set of rear steel rims available if not tires as well if they are different dia.

The 451 rear wheels would need spacers to be used on a 450.

Thanks we will wave as we drive thru Seaforth tonight on our way back

It's not that bad!  haha  Gonna tell you anyway....

 

We bought this car in Toronto at Midtown in February and the condition was that the car comes with new steel rims and new winter tires.  It was delivered on used rims with used winter tires (I later got a $500 refund for the mistake).

 

So I brought the car in 2010 to Three Point Motors in Victoria for its out of province inspection and the black BRABUS wheels had not yet arrived from Toronto.  So the dealer saw the peeling rims and put 4 new steel rims on the car, free of charge, without me asking.  Problem is, one of the rear rims was a 451 rim.  I pointed this out to the service guy and he apologized and had it immediately changed to a new rear 450 rim.
