20 Inch for 17 Inch

Mon Jun 04, 2012 6:33 pm

I recently bought a 2009 Pajero with standard 20Inch wheels.
I was hoping to trade someone for standard 17inch wheels.
Very good looking wheels, but a little unpractical for offroad.

Currently have Yokohama 265/50R20 with about 80% left on.
Let me know and i can sent pictures.

Standard 20" wheels? You serious?

The only comment I can make is that if it was fitted with 20" wheels, the bodywork and 4WD system will be in very good condition. The gearbox and engine, maybe not so much.

Yip, can you believe it?
Its only got 40k on the clock, so at least everything is in good condition...but yes, no offroad was done.

You all think the best way is just to go and get mags and sell the 20's?

Well it's of no use to you with the 20's unless you plan on only cruising the malls looking like a dork. I'd look for the original rims

There is a rumour around that it's only true if there is a photo - would love to see this!

Can you post a photo?

Nice rims, but not for a Pajero. Get the original ones, please! These belong on a Jaguar or an AUDI or something not meant for off-road.

I really want the 17" originals...was hoping someone here is more a street junky and would like to trade. I guess if you have a pajero you use it as it was intended...
At the dealers the price is just a little steep...
Any other ideas? Scrapyards?

Hi there

I have a set of 17 inch wheels at home. They are perfect. Not sure I want to part with them but will give it some thought and get back to you. I might consider a swop.
