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, 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 December 1, 2020, TuffAnts' freight pricing was limited to commercial addresses exclusively, encompassing commercial offices or tire fitters. At that time, TNT, which is now under the ownership of FedEx, implemented an additional $175 charge for wheel shipments to residential addresses. TuffAnt had been absorbing previous cost increases but could not accommodate that particular rise. Consequently, the change was implemented from December 1, 2020.
We had communicated the matter to TNT (now owned by FedEx) and had explored alternative shipping companies. Until further notice, all deliveries were required to be directed to commercial premises only (excluding home offices) starting from December 1, 2020.
How much is Freight?
Freight of wheels 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**
