Wheel fitting guides - 2nd batch - NOW A LIVE SIGNUP

This signup is now closed. Please use this topic http://disco3.co.uk/forum/topic161349.html to purchase

Following on from the success of my first batch of wheel fitting guides here:- http://disco3.co.uk/forum/topic145977.html I am running a sign up to gauge interest in making another lot.

Price will be £25 inc. delivery within the UK. This also includes a donation to the forum.

REMEMBER - this is only to test the market to see if there is enough interest to make manufacturing another batch feasible.

THIS IS NOW A LIVE SIGNUP If you are on the list, you have commited to buying a set of wheel guides. Please remove your name if you no longer require them.

I have sufficient interest to get a new batch of these made up. I will run this signup until Friday 10th of June at which point I will order the wheel guides.

If I receive enough interest I will PM you from this signup to confirm.

Mike

Basically, these hold the weight of the wheel and allow you to align it properly whilst you get the first nut on.

The way to use them is screw the longer pin on to the highest stud, and the shorter on on a lower one. It doesn't really matter, but I have found that if the longer rod is higher, it's slightly easier to use.

Next, hang the wheel on the long rod and rotate it around until the short rod lines up and push the wheel up to the hub.

It's then straightforward to fit three wheel nuts.

Remove the rods and fit the remaining wheel nuts, tighten them up and you're done.

How many do you need to register a show of interest, before it warrants the manufacture of a second batch ? Thumbs Up

25 sets across D3, D4, FFRR and RRS.
Quite close to that now, but I will let this run for a week to see how many I need to order.

I have enough interest to make a new batch. If you are signed up at the top of this topic, I will take it that you want to purchase a set. If this is not the case, please remove your name from the list.

I will leave this buy open until the 10th of June, at which point numbers will be finalised and ordered. At the moment I am not sure what the lead time will be, but I will not be asking for payment until I have them.

Thanks,

Mike

Robbie summed it up on another thread; changing a wheel is OK in perfect conditions, but at night, in the dark, at the side of a road with slope and camber and that dodgy LR jack, I would like to know I can align the new wheel as quickly as possible and get four boots back on the road and me in the car.

Hence I am in Thumbs Up Simple ideas are sometimes the best.

Indeed I did.

For anyone wondering if you need these or not - stop thinking and buy.

These things make changing a wheel a breeze. On a nice day, on a flat drive, with a good jack and strong arms, getting a wheel on and off without gouging your alloys on the brakes is not hard.

Make the conditions rainy, or dark, or on a bad camber, or on a less than ideal jack/jacking surface or someone with weaker strength, then mounting 20+ kgs on to the studs becomes a real pain without these alignment tools.

I use them all the time. Tighten them down finger tight and then back them off 1/8 turn before use. That way they are easy to remove.

Highly recommended.

Can you send them to Germany as well? And what would be the cost for the shipping?

If it's not to bad, I'd be in. Smile

£5.15 to Germany if you want the cheapest service. £9.65 if it's signed for on delivery.

That would make the price delivered to you £27.34 or £31.84 depending which service you choose.

I'm happy to send them anywhere as long as the postage is covered. Thumbs Up
