Ok, so my hub adaptors arn't the most "legal" thing... But they look grouse!
The plan is to change to AU hubs anyway, as I want 4 piston (minimum) front calipers, twin rears, so wont be a prob then anyway.

mate i own a computer business in town a successful one at that
and there is a few things i learned in my first few yrs and have been told its normal by many other business owners who are close mates is that people who have never dealt with you will say s**t about u and your business and that most people will automatically bad mouth you because they have never heard of you before and this is very very true people do this and other people hear this and it spreads

and another thing as i import chinese,japense, taiwense stuff as a part of my business is that people complain about these alot but the thing is people will only say something about a product if they have had a really really good experience with it or if it was even the slightest bit wrong and you dont need to be a genius to know what one happens most and its going to happen even more on mass produced stuff like the chinese stuff ive only ever had one faulty product from all my thousands of imports and that was 1 not properly balanced fan

and some customers are genuinely idiots ive had someone try to claim warranty on a computer a built them as it stopped working after it had water spilt on it (that didnt kill it though) and had been punched(that didnt kill it though) or the fact it had apparently been thrown off some hill(still didnt kill it) and that they had then opened it up and put there fingers all over everything (thats what killed it)

so unless you personally have had a bad experience with them and the quality of there product please keep your one minded opinion to your self

here is one of the few pages ive found of people personally having dealt with tempe tyres and having good storys for years
http://mx5cartalk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=44069

and if what "Jeo" says is true from that forum the simmons range will be great quality

i know they are dodgy when they fit it etc (seen a few stories of them putting angle grinders to brake rotors to make the rim fit but i doubt that as most people go bigger than factory rims and even brembo's will fit under a small 18)
