Full Size Rim - Wanted

Post by Sculliver » Sat Oct 02, 2021 7:47 pm

Hi All

Following a recent puncture, it appears as though the rim
is compromised and at fault for the air loss.

I’ve had it checked by two separate garages/tyre yards and both say it’s beyond repair.

Any suggestions on where I could pick up a single full size rim at a reasonable price? The bongo has been tough on the wallet lately and not keen to fork out for a full, sparkly set just yet.

Any hints or tips welcome.

Based in Bournemouth.

Thanks.

You might be lucky and get on from someone fitting alloys or breaking a Bongo. [-o<

Otherwise Bongo Spares are very good for used parts.

Bear in mind if it's 4 wheel drive it's very important that all 4 tyres have the same circumference, otherwise the system can be damaged.

Bongo Spares advertising sets for about £300+. I probably need to contact them for a single though if they have one.

Gladly, mine is not a 4 wheel drive.

Fingers crossed, they do come up for free occasionally. [-o<
