I used to have one of those PA tire changers. I sold it as it was way too much like hard work! That must have been one heck of a workout?

Parts for Sale / LR110 softtop hoops
« Last post by ugly_90 on August 09, 2020, 01:07 PM »
I have a partial set of vertical 110 hoops here, two front hoops, one middle and no rear hoop. Horizontal sections are missing, but could likely be easily made, as they are only thin pipe.

I'm including the front canvas catch here, made of extruded aluminum, that one would be hard to fabricate on your own.

I have no other parts for these, and the set is incomplete.

$200 for the lot here.

Sounds like the Covid situation is deteriorating somewhat in BC. Don't think it will interfere with the trip yet. I think there are some fire bans incoming for the SW of Alberta as well.

Used the Princess Auto tire machine to demount two tires and then mount 6 good used Duratrac 235/85r16 tires on Disco 1 steel rims today. Likely would have cost around $200 at a tire shop.

I ran the Disco steels on mine for many years, they're really solid. What I was especially impressed with was their ability to maintain a bead seal at low pressure and (excessive) distortion on the tire. Many times in Moab I'd be up on one or two tires, running at 10 - 12 psi, and the seal would hold.

I would have kept running them but I needed an offset on the rim to run 35's. Excellent rim though.

I also think they just look better than the aluminum too. Rugged.
