Did Doug ever get his car back?

Reason I ask is because I swear I saw his car in a McDonalds drive through a few weeks ago... but I had no idea that his car was stolen..

long shot... but could these be the wheels? it matches the front ones on the car

http://www.usedvictoria.com/classified-ad/7423122

in the ad, the rears are on the side so it's kinda hard to see... tire thread looks to match

89 240SX's are 4-bolt, unless he's swapped for late model S14 hubs. (From what I can remember, been a long time since I owned a 240)

Those wheels for sale are 5-bolt.

The 17x10 FN's were never made in 4 lug. Definitely 5 lug.

Thats quite the ad.

these are in colwood
they are priced cheap
tire thread matches
these wheels aren't common in Victoria

i don't live in colwood anymore, but someone should call and go check it out... i wouldn't go alone though, you have some crazy ppl in colwood and langford

ps i think the number in the ad should be 250, not 205

at the same time, you can't go to see the wheels expecting that they're stolen, it could just be a coincidence and legit

you wanna kno if these are the wheels?

the fronts should be 17x9 with a 35 offset.. the right front should have tiny scratch marks on the inner side of the outside lip (if he happens to have a 30mm lugcentric spacer with shortened studs then its a dead give away)

the backs should be 17x10 with a 25 offset... the right should have a small (maybe less than 1") scrape on the outter lip

that's if doug didnt scrape them up any more...

the tires were 235/40s on the rear and were hankooks
but when i sold the car to doug the fronts had 215/40 bf goodrich

i hope u guys find the bastard(s) that stole this car

Kind of bringing this thread back.... but what was the end result of checking those rims out? Did they lead to finding the car? Was it just a fluke having them posted for so cheap at the same time?

If it's a small world and people are stupid, isn't that insinuating that they would have been busted and the stolen car/ parts been recovered?

"the usedvic ad and email was handed over to West Shore RCMP.

Dont what has happened since "
Since that was posted on what looks to be December 3rd, I'm going to go with busting in with a bunch of buds isn't an option.


******I don't want to being this thread back... I was just hoping the OP would give us all a little insight as to whether or not anything was recovered*****

the ad was handed over to westshore RCMP and we let them handle it.

A good friend of ours works out of that detachment and he followed up on the matter.

this thread is now done.
