Make sure you fill in the "Further Comments" section stating that you want wheels to suit your older FORD

maybe if enough of us spam this link something will be done :twisted:

Yeah it pisses me off too. When you rock up to those tyre places and they got 600 sets of new rims on show and you ask what they got for an EL. And then they look down and tell you they only got 2 sets available :evil: :evil: :evil:

ROH rims are VERY expensive in comparison to other import brands and so on.

If your that fed up, get hub adapters which then allow about 50+ wheels to go on your car.. easier! :)

Most places will chuck then in for the same price as the set of the wheels+tyres.

ROH are, I think, the wheels manufacturer version of "Dodgy Brothers".

If you were to order a set of ROH Milano rims for an XB GT, recieve them, and have the rear wheels almost fall off after 100 km, you would ask questions wouldn't you?

True story!!

When the rims were looked at they had not put any "relief" for where the wheel studs poke thru the disks, which meant the rim centre was sitting against the end of the threads, and not the disks. Rims were sent back for machining reliefs in, and recieved back in worse condition, paint chipped, and the reliefs appeared to be put in with a very large drill bit and elec drill, (not machined in ANY sense of the word).

When this was queried, they said "XB's were never fitted with disk brake rear ends, and the cost of repairs would be forwarded". Even the Tyre dealer was amazed at that comment.

This went on for a couple of weeks, it was suggested that ROH contact Ford or the Ford GT club re the XB and disk brake rear ends. The rims were subsequently returned (no apology for the glaring mistakes and workmanship issues from ROH), so a set of Simmons were ordered. Simmons arrived and fitted with no problems at all.

How did ROH mess this up?? Still don't know.

How large a tyre do you reckon you could you go with the GTR offset before you scrubbed?
