New 76 Series GXL alloys wheels. Possible swap for Factory steelies ?


Active Member
Hi All.
I'm expecting my new 76 to arrive in the next couple / few months after an unbelievably long wait.
I'm thinking of going "skinny's" on the build.
If anyone happens to have a set of new steel skinnies (from a 78 Troopy) for example, that they would be interested in swapping with my brand new GXL alloys. (I'm in Sydney) hit me up here.

Good to hear you are getting close to getting your 76
You talking split rims or just steelies ?

I would be keen to swap but do not know the compatibility.

LC78 is 225/95R16.
LC76 is 265/70R16.

LC76 has flares to accommodate extra width, whereas LC78 does not.

Not sure about wheel offset either.

I will need to look at the LC78 tyre placard on legality when I get it.

I will touch base after I get the vehicle.
