Australian Volk Distributor

Recommended Posts

I'm new to the Skyline brotherhood. Have recently purchased R33 sedan, which is fitted with Volk 17's (Don't know model, multispoke design) I need the plastic spanner that should have been supplied with the rim to remove the centre cap covering the wheel nuts. I've tried everybody on the left coast, is there an Australian distibutor in the east?? :wassup:

speaking of volks....the other day i was at a suspension/brakes joint up in tullamarine getting my daily driver (holden commo VR) some new rear shockers....while waiting in the store i looked at a catalog of rims. Looking in the calalog i spotted white 'VORK' rims....on the other side of the rim photo it said 'RAVS engineering'. what a cheap ass rip off! Imagine going up to ur mates 'check out my new VORKS' only to realise u've been stiffed with some crap imitation.

With my Volks I can remove the centre cap with a oil filter remover tool (forget the proper name)

I got the rear caps off using a strap type filter remover but the front ones won't budge. Looks like I'll have to make some sort of spanner up.

Not sure about being a rip-off. "R" is pronounced as "L" in japanese so maybe the pronounciation has been taken literally....

I once purchased one from West state Tyres on Albany Hwy, Cannington about 2 years ago. I broke mine just recently and these dudes don't stock them any more. But they stock Volk now so maybe if lucky.

Yeah, I've seen those wheels. What a fuggin joke, that's just pathetic. I think they might of been in an Avanti catalog.
