Recently purchased some swaybar links for my Chevy ute in Thailand, including fitting came to just over 1200THB, which is about $50AUD.

Now these Chevy's are the same as an Aussie Holden Colorado, imagine how much it would have cost in Australia for exactly the same part including fitting, when all these products are made in the same country.

Why do you already need a rim? Do they has only a spacesaver spare?

No on the contrary, the Trailhawk with Tow pack comes as advertised with a full sized matching spare tyre. Unfortunately I did not realize by tyre they meant just the tyre.... The matching spare tyre is fitted to a speed limited steel rim..

Most people would have thought the same as you. A few will be disappointed.

Just a thought. You could buy a full set of after market wheels and then offset the cost by flogging the originals to other Trailhawk owners as spares?
Space saver and speed limited spares piss me off on conventional cars but on active 4x4s, it is almost inconceivable!
