    Went with the Nankang AT tyres @ 195 R15 with some replica Mercedes steel wheels from Germany.

    Ordered new studs and bolts from T3 Technique.

    Removed the small retaining bolts from the rear brake drum to ensure correct fit after the good advise on here.

    I think they look pretty good, new black bumpers are up next…

    Thanks for all the advice everyone!

    If you are looking to move on the chrome bumper bars, and they are dent free & in good condition, please keep me in mind. :rolleyes:

    Hard to tell from those pics…

    Very nice.

    Great to have some of the Merc wheel range to fit our vehicles.

    They come up great on a T3....

    Hi mate, the front bumper is in pretty bad shape to be honest with two big rust holes, I may need to keep the rear and respray it as they are out of stock at the moment

    Wasn’t sure whether to have them powder coated silver but I think the black on white looks a bit more stealth which is the look I’m going for rather than the classic!

    No worries.

    If you can spray the rear chrome bar, it is a thicker stronger better item, than the thinner aftermarket ready to paint ones they sell new. ;)

    Spraying over chrome is difficult

    BBT manufacture 2.3mm thick bars now in black, chrome with holes and chrome without holes. Much better than the Klokkerholms

    As long as that still rings true…….. nothing worse these days, than paying top dollar, and getting crap quality.:mad:
