    Hi brains trust,
    For whatever reason, when I purchased my rims I only got four!
    Now I'm after a fifth as a spare.

    I can't remember the mob in Bne I bought them from, nor the address.
    I've googled, ebay'd, gumtree'd, wild card searched and rung around many wreckers, but cannot locate a fifth!
    The few folks I have contacted either want to sell as a set of 4, or insist I pay handsomely for the rubber as they won't sell a 'crappy tyre'.

    This close to my cape trip, I'd happily take one of the other patterns.

    Any suggestions?

    Btw, I can't believe I can't find the original wreckers. They were BMW specific, on Bris south side, steep driveway and pile of rims!
    Of course I bought them cash so no invoice or transaction record to refer to. Grrr.

    Cheers Ralph

    Ralph,

    I will send you a PM, as I have a couple of these in another spoke pattern if you are interested.

    Folks,
    I have solved my problem thanks to a fellow forum member .
    However I did post a similar call for help on a BMW forum and had one response from a chap in Adelaide who has available one of the pattern I was after.
    If anyone is looking for one of these, let me know and I'll give you his details.

    Cheers
