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)



Thanks

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..

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

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
