Frequently Asked Questions
Where are TuffAnts made?
TuffAnts steel wheels are made in a dedicated steel wheel manufacturer in China alongside other name brand Australian and North American steel wheels that most people in the 4WD community have heard of. They manufacture all types of wheels including SUV, trailer, and even OEM wheels for certain car makers. Only approved steel suppliers are used to ensure all standards and compliance requirements are met along with verification from Australian engineers.
The company has been in business for over 20 years and does not make alloys, just good quality steel wheels.
Do TuffAnts have Alloy wheels?
Yes! TuffAnt has recently developed a new 18" alloy wheel that fits Discovery 3, 4, and 5 (MY20 not yet tested). The wheel has undergone rigorous testing processes to ensure all standards and compliance requirements have been met. TuffAnt is committed to providing quality off-road alternatives.
Are TuffAnts legal in Australia?
To ensure you get the very best, TuffAnts Steelies are made from high strength steel, machine pressed, machine welded, painted, then powdercoated to provide a wheel that is rated at 1000kg each.
TuffAnt Alloys are manufactured by pressure cast, then powdercoated, and are rated to 1050kg each.
How much do they weigh?
TuffAnt Steelies weigh approximately 18kg.
TuffAnt Alloys weigh approximately 13.7kg.
Who is TuffAnt?
TuffAnt is a brand new range of wheels and accessories designed specifically for Land Rover Discovery 3 and,4, and some models of the Discovery 5.
With nearly 20 years of sourcing and manufacturing experience in China, TuffAnt has Australian designed and internationally engineered these new products where no others existed. Additionally, our director has designed and operated factories in China from the ground up, ensuring you won't be getting "overseas rubbish".
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 MKII/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 in Brisbane can be arranged. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
**These prices are for commercial addresses only, see note above as to why**
If you live outside the listed areas contact us at email@example.com to arrange a quote.
Can TNT deliver without signature?
Unfortunately, no. TNT will not leave your delivery without a signature, regardless of how safe/secure your area is. If no-one is at home, TNT will redeliver but at a cost. This is something that we have zero control over.
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
Do you provide International delivery?
