Everywhere online says 160/5. Was 130/5 a typo?

Yeah the 130 was a typo it is really 5x160mm. I got to measure the center bore too. From checking online HRS Taiwan manufactures the wheels but they said I got to find a dealer that carries them and provides shipping, they don't sell retail. Apparently none of the dealers in India ships international.
I know the Discovery 1 carries a 5x165mm but I don't know where I can get this blank and someone to drill the PCD :(

Tried them already.Problem is there is a lot of Indian dealers and manufacturers but not of them ship international.
Most dealers here believe the vehicle isn't popular enough to to stock these rims from what I can tell but I have been seeing a lot more on the roads now,

best thing to do is brace the firm and make them bring it down.

On that website I seeing some HRS branded wheels. I does see alot of pickups here with those whels. So I assume there must be a dealer/importer. If you can find out who it is, I guess you can ask them to bring in a set on their next shipment. Eg this

Sexy... but I still haven't heard if the consumable parts such as air, oil and fuel filters are available outside the company and whether anyone is able to get rims for them. The rims are less important ofc...

I've been noticing rusted screws on the inside of the rear doors and in the tray and the headlight decide to break itself. Lifestyle said they will handle both issues for me.



Otherwise great van so far.

Headlight decided to break itself? Also how does a screw on the inside of a door get rusted?

the mahindra my padna have still running strong, just unhappy about the rims.

I just really hope that Lifestyle don't stop bringing these in otherwise - there won't be any hope to get parts.

What are your guys thoughts on re-drilling the rotors and hubs to fit a different PCD ?
How costly is it ?
Where can it be done properly ?
Can it be changed from 5x160mm to 5x150mm ?

There's spacers that can change the spacing. I'd prefer to use that

Saw this Mahindra A Movietowne POS today

I believe it the same one that goes on runs with the Side B guys. (TCW **72). seen it in some of the off-road run pics. Can any of the guys from Side B find out where he got the rims from ?
Those wheels really transformed that van,it looked so much more aggressive that mines with the stock steelies and hubcaps

not sure if its the same van, but civic will have the info on that....

also there are shops that do re-drill rims locally, Wheel wizard, Race-trac, Mag wheel centre, u can check them and look into this as an option.......


i would advise against to re-drill the hubs, as its a van and 4X4? right?
