pretty far away coyote... southern oregon.

i really appreciate the offer though. that's awesome of you.

if you're willing to have them shipped, let me know. i'll even make the arrangements myself with the freight co. all you'd have to do is drop and go.

i understand though. it'd be a hassle. so no worries if you'd rather not. again, i really appreciate the offer.

thanks!

it is hard for me to get them somewhere right now since my car is not done yet. Only thing I have to carry stuff on is my bike. I don't think the post office would want to deal with some dirty old rims.

Usually you can find the 13 inch rims pretty easy in junkyards since the tires are easy to find they usually stay on the cars longer than a car with 12 inch tires that have good tread. Last time I went to a junkyard I saw 2 metros with 13 inch rims and one with 12s that had totally bald tires. There were no good 12 inch tires to be had there, but the cars with 13s on them had decent tires.

But if you can't find anything else and can figure some way to get these just let me know.

thank man. i'll let you know. maybe a fellow ecomodder someplace near by is interested in helping out. LOL

i wouldn't go usps with them for sure. figured just a freight company. i've shipped large items that way before a couple times. no boxes or anything required either. which is nice.

anyway... i called every single junkyard in my area (about 5 of them). not a single one had any 13's. i also called the 3 junkyards in the next major town 2 hours away, and no dice their either. lol.

my hunt continues!!

speaking of junkyards... do i need to stick to pre 89-94's model years for the 13's or if i find some off of an older model 95+ will those work as well?

95+ will also fit. The rim bolt pattern on Metro is 4 X 4.5

SirKeats: have you asked at http://teamswift.net? There's a "stuff wanted" forum there, and a higher proportion of Suzukiclone owners than here.

These are all over the web.
This link goes to about a thousand bone yards America wide.
call them and they will ship to your door.

http://car-part.com/

also try,

http://rockauto.com/

They sell new stuff and it seems to be at the lowest prices I have found.

happy hunting,
S.
