What you read is correct. The sensors out of the factory steel wheels will not fit the ZX valve hole because of the angle. You'll either have to purchase new sensors or run your factory sensors on a band and bracket system (straps the sensor to the barrel of the wheel). The band and bracket system runs $44.00 and covers all 4 corners.

Would DTT offer something (band and bracket) like that? I am planning for my future tires and probably put the sensors in this time.

Absolutely. We have the proper TPMS sensors as well as the band and bracket system available

Matte gunmetal, matte bronze, and matte black are the only finishes the MK6 is currently produced in.

I bought the bronze guardians, I wish I would have ordered through Discount Tire Direct. My local store was incompetent, dishonest and to top it all off they took some paint off the wheel face by the holes for the lugs-not impressed.

Unfortunately they guy I was dealing with was the assistant manager-I will just look for wheels and tires elsewhere next time.

Anyways, I like the bronze guardians, they look great. I am in the process of figuring out how to make a custom center cap.

I would still contact the store manager. Our number one goal is our customers complete satisfaction and we have fallen short here. If we can help from our end please send us a PM with your invoice #, name, and telephone number.

The 16x8.5 ET-6 tracker will fit your 09 Offroad. I'm not aware of any Level 8 dealers in Canada but we can mail order a set to you for FREE. We also charge all Tariff Fee's up front to ensure faster delivery and to guarantee no further charges to you once the packages arrive.

In-regards to the fitment, the 265/75-16 DuraTrac is ideally mounted on a wheel that is 7" to 8" wide but it can be mounted safely on a wheel up to 9" wide per the RMA specifications.

Give us a call at 1.888.459.4080 and anyone of our sales agents would be happy to assist you with a total out the door quote. Just make sure you let the agent you speak with know you are a member here.
