    +1 - great idea!

    Good morning, need some help to figure out what the smallest version of the 14" setup is that shown in the thread and then where I can buy it in the Cape Town area. Thanks

    Welcome Gerrit. By how many cm do you need to drop your BL? I assume you are trying to lower it to fit into a garage with a lower than standard door height. Do you currently have the standard 15" rims?

    When in doubt, paint it black

    Thank you (getting my Miskruier next weekend), I have to fit her into 1.93m but possibly if I fiddle with the door 1.96m. I don't have the exact height but assuming worst case I want to get the lowest possible option during next week not to struggle sorting it out over the weekend. I have read some of the previous posts so a normal tyre change seems easiest since I couldn't find a place that sells those parking wheels.

    Have you tried Camp World for the parking wheels?
