Hi,

I'm looking to sell a set of 5 Unimog wheels I bought from Germany. I've treated them and then painted with Rustoleum Satin Black. Tyres are 4x Michelin XZL 10.5R20 + 1x 10.5R20 Uniroyal as a spare wheel. Tyres are reasonably good nick, I'd say about 70%, some minor crack and there is a cut on one sidewall, but doesn't seems to be deep, my tyre repair man was happy with them when mounted. All 5 is fitted with inner tubes.

Unfortunately they proven too big for my VW conversion so I got to go for 9r16s.

I'm looking to sell the full set of 5 for around £850 or open to offers or swap to size mentioned above, even with rims as they should fit nicely on my van.

I'm based in Seascale, Cumbria. If anyone's interested I can send detailed photos of all (couldn't attach them here)

Afraid I'm not able to afford them, but only a few miles up the road in Braystones.

Might be worth asking Vic Nicholson up in Haile if he'd be interested, as he's considering a new set of tyres for his Ambi.

I could offer you some balding bargrips, or some petlas that are getting worn down and cracked.
No good sets available I'm afraid.

To be perfectly honest I don't know what is the right asking price for them. I think I spent similar amount for the full set by the time I got the wheels from Germany and fitted tyres, refurbished the rims etc.

Always open to offers.

I can good second hand tyres off the Netherlands for £150 / piece in size 9r16 XZLs shipped. I might need to go for it unless something pops up here.

Ps. Braystones is pretty close to me then, however I only have a VW LT 4x4 motorhome, which may not be interest for any 101ers...

Useful to know you can get 9.00x16 Michelin at that price.
I've got a IIA FC, Series 3 One Ton and GS 101 projects that will all need tyres in the not too distant future.

I'll ask Vic if he's interested in your wheels and tyres when I see him next.
If you PM me a contact number I can get him to phone you if he's interested.

unimog wheels have a different offset to standard 101 rims and may need to have spacers fitted before you use them or they will interfere with the steering and be illegal as they would be an MOT fail. Even then the spacers may reduce your turning radius.

there is a 6 Stud article explaining what to do as it was a popular topic 10 years ago

I know they're still for sale, the rim will rub on the standard dark rubber boot on the drag link end, but this can be solved by replacing it with a smaller one from a later ball joint from a Discovery or similar.

There are people that run 101's on these rims without spacers or any problems.
Pm me if you want his number, probably easier to contact him that way as I believe he's having Internet access problems at present

You need spacers with mog wheels. The left side rim will still rub even if a narrower rubber boot is used on the ball joint. Spacers made from cut down brake drums which some people have used give just about enough clearance but ideally you needed at least 25mm.

Like LR rims Unimog rims you can also get in different offset so it all depends on what Unimog rim you buy. I have Unimog rims on my 101 FC and use a 3mm spacer to clear the steeringrubber.
