Frequently Asked Questions
Who is TuffAnt?
TuffAnt is an Australian company based in Brisbane Queensland, and is committed to providing quality off-road alternatives. Born out of a passion for Land Rover and 4WDriving, TuffAnt specialises in providing a range of wheels and accessories designed specifically for Land Rover Discovery 3, 4, 5, New Defender, and some models of the Range Rover Sport.
Do TuffAnts have Steel or Alloy wheels?
Yes! TuffAnt offer both steel and alloy wheels all specifically designed for 4WDriving and to suit your style and budget.
The TuffAnt Pilbara is an 18" steel wheel made from high strength steel, machine pressed, machine welded, painted, then powder-coated to provide a wheel that is rated at 1000kg each. The Pilbara embraces its rugged, no-nonsense looks.
The TuffAnt Simpson is an 18" alloy wheel that has more of that OEM look and fits the all models of Discovery 3, 4, and 5. Manufactured by pressure cast, then powder-coated, The Simpson is rated to 1050kg each.
The TuffAnt Kimberley is the most recent addition to the line-up. This wheel, also 18", is rotary forged and is our lightest, strongest wheel ever, coming in at a featherlight 13.4kg and impressive load rating of 1500kg.
All of the TuffAnt wheels undergo rigorous testing processes to ensure all standards and compliance requirements have been met.
Where are TuffAnts made?
TuffAnt wheels are made in dedicated wheel factories in China. They manufacture all types of wheels including 4WD, SUV, trailer, and even OEM wheels for certain car manufacturers. We work in closely with the factory and have in place rigorous testing and Quality Assurance checks to ensure all standards and compliance requirements are met along with verification from Australian engineers.
Are TuffAnts legal in Australia?
How much do they weigh?
TuffAnt Pilbara weigh approximately 18kg.
TuffAnt Simpson weigh approximately 13.7kg.
TuffAnt Kimberley weigh approximately 13.4kg.
Will they fit my Range Rover?
Certain Range Rover models are also able to use these wheels. Check the Fitment page for the latest information that is updated regularly.
Can I put ET27 wheels on my Discovery 4?
Even though the MKII/ET27 was specifically designed for the D5, they do actually fit the D4, they just have a slightly wider track (17mm) due to the differing offset. The overall diameter of the wheel does not change, and the wheel still sits nicely within the wheel arch.
Can I pickup?
Whilst we don't have a bricks and mortar store, pickup from our warehouse in Brisbane can be arranged. Contact us at email@example.com. to arrange a suitable time.
What is my best delivery option?
By far and away, the most hassle-free delivery option is to get your wheels delivered direct to your tyre fitter. TNT will only deliver within business hours but do require a signature. By delivering direct to your tyre fitter, it saves you the time and hassle of being at home for TNT then taking them yourself to the tyre fitter.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON FREIGHT
As of the 1st December 2020, the listed prices for freight of TuffAnts will be to commercial addresses only (commercial office or tyre fitters). TNT have opted to implement an additional $175 charge for any shipment of our wheels to residential addresses. TuffAnt has absorbed all price rises and residential charges until now, but we cannot absorb this hike, so sadly we need to implement this change from December 1.
We have raised the matter with TNT (now owned by FedEx) and are currently looking at other companies, but until further notice all deliveries from December 1 need to be to commercial premises only (ie Home Offices do no apply).
How much is Freight?
Freight of Steelie and Alloys to metro locations are
Brisbane $65, Sydney $95, ACT $135, Melbourne $135, Adelaide $165, Hobart $175, Perth $195, Darwin $295.
**These prices are for commercial addresses only, see note above as to why**
If you live outside the listed areas contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a quote.
Can I get the wheels delivered direct to my tyre fitter?
Yes! In fact, many TuffAnt customers prefer this option as it it removes the hassle of having to be at home for TNT
