are you after steel or alloy? i think finding alloy once would be pretty hard. Elite wheels will do em in steel.

Elite will likely do them, but PM Cam, he used to get hookups in that regard and still has connections IIRC.

just ring TWL to find the info on the centreless ROH rims. Theyre the ones that stock em. Elite get 'em off 'em. Should be able to find an engineer up your ways to put ur centres in

they only go up to 8 inch but if you get centreless rims you might be able to mash a 1 inch band in there aswell? They are about $300 for 4 so not very cheap.

Those wheels are just ag wheels anyway. I found some banging ag wheels for on one of those mean suzuki quad truck things and they were available in 4x100 but only up to 12 inch at that place. He said he got them from whanagrei imports, which is that big warehouse along the straight thats just after onerahi if you are heading to the heads. Apparently they bring in heaps of centreless and blank rims so deffinately give them a go.

If you do just get that cunt to widen them make sure he flips them too.

12's and even 13's probably won't go over the brakes.

Find some tyres that will fit on 9's before you go with them because I think 14" tyres are a little bit hard to get in a nice width. Shane would probably be able to stretch 195's over 9's though so you should be sweet :lol: Just something to keep in the back of your mind.

i made keen to do this for drag rims to fit decent width rubber, skids etc
do they do 15s aswell?
could just do 14s iff need be
where do i get centres from need 4x100 aswell

yeh just make sure u measure the centres u want to use to make sure theyll fit inside the roh rims properly. a couple mm too big is ok but im not sure if itll work if theyre slightly too small.

the engineer i used could get hookups at TWL. i think they were like 60something retail. or something
