    Hi dungarover
    I had 15x8” Sunraysia wheels on a previous RRC but I do not know what the offset was.
    Do you know what the offset of yours are as I would like to get my Rostyle wheels widened to 8” but need to know what offset to use.

    Regards
    Phil

    Hi Phil,

    Not sure why you want to go 8",,,,,,,,,,, the modded (15 x 7") Rostyles on my pos have 31 x 10.5 tyres which fit neatly in the guards without needing flares.

    Me too, 31x10.5 on 7" Gotti's, standard guards - they are a good fit.

    If Ritter's had them made - probably done by Eastern Wheel Works - they still make them but not cheap. They do good work though.

    Nice unit............... great colour! Red is crap.

    !5" rims? not 16's?

    Dunno who made the ones I have, would have cost a fortune to weld chromed rims onto steel centres. I didn't realise they were chrome till I picked them up, was going to get them galvanised.

    cheers, DL

    Thanks, but the red looks good too. Yes 15x7"s, I like the proportions - Had them for years, previously on my D1. I did push out the bottom of the rear guards with a new bracket though to prevent rubbing.

    Hi 350RRC
    I’m just trying to “fill out the guards” to try and give that modern look that the current Range Rovers have.

    The only place that I have found locally to Sydney that can fit wider outer rims is Morton & May.
    Because of the diameter of the centre of the wheel, outer rims must be sourced from the USA as the centres are a different diameter to that used by English and European manufacturers.
    Fitting the rims is $350 per wheel plus another $150 for powder coating provided a standard colour is used.
    $2000 for a set of 4 but at least they would be safety rims that can then use tubeless tyres without any issues.
