Porta Walls/Flappers/White Walls etc.
 
Alright,

I'm looking for some "Porta Walls" to fit onto a 15" rim/tyre and was wondering where you guys have gotten yours from and how much they cost?

Would i be best off going to a tyre/wheel shop (e.g. Tempe, Ozzy Tyres) and asking them about it?

If anyone has any pictures of porta walls/flappers on their Holden feel free to post up.

(I'm lookin for something like this)

im after them too mate.. iv been looking around for quite some time..

Alot of people suggest buying online from america where they are a dime a dozen. I am purchasing some 16" 3cm portawalls from america through ebay for just $14.99

Alot of wheel shops dont have a clue where to get them but there are plenty on ebay for reasonably cheap, you just need to try a bunch of different searches (whitewall inserts, flappers, portawalls etc)

aye guys put (white wall inserts) in ebay but usa have the best different colours and stuff, or in berwick VIC 3806 a guy does them (johns rod and customs),, but warning if you go over 3 inch wall will last only about 2 weeks on a daily driver because will start peeling from the rims have had this on my car for a year and ive had three sets, and different types of tyres work better than other...
hope this is help for you guys..

How long would 2 inch wall inserts last on a car thats driven once a week?

87hevn 07-01-11 20:49

Thanks 87hevn, your car looks great :)
Where on that website do i find the section for white porta walls??
Also, do they send/post to Sydney?

Thanks

This is the guy I used to use when I was importing them, send him a message on eBay with what you want, and where too and he will invoice your paypal hen just pay it and arrives in about 2-3weeks from memory, the more you buy the cheaper they are(saving on postege)
He has more styles/coloures not listed.
They normally are about 75aud delivered for a single set and around 45 for 3+ sets

These are the same as what was used on raptors car itl-555, gmh-jc's waive, and comfli

Hope that helps your guys out

Edit oops forgot the link lol

Ive been trying to find a picture i found on here ages ago... its a white vl calais with polished calais wheels with portawals on them

shaun55 23-06-11 18:10

sk8in 23-06-11 19:32

Andy-30L 24-06-11 16:56

mate of mine has an r33 skyline. he put rear pods on it but they werent secured properly an they used to flap off when he went round corners. so, thoughtfully i gave him the well thought out name 'flappy gums flaps mcgee'... mindless piece of information but it made me laugh!

this is andy 30L, over an out :p

shaun55 24-06-11 18:54

hahahah you crack me up Andy, yeah if they are not installed properly, which is easy to see if they are or not, they do come off. I lost one on my way to Powercruise, yep, i was devo!
