MACH 5 Rims

Is anyone aware of a source for the rims pictured below in the US? They have them on the Scorpion Racing website and they appear popular for Rovers in Europe, but I have not seen them for sale in the US.

Thanks,

Doug

You will not see them for sale here in the US due to a liability issues. The weld tends to crack which can cause a failure. However, this problem was in the old design wheels and new ones should be fine.

Doug, The Mach 5 (7x16) comes in a Baresteel Finish or Powder Coated. I will get back to you with the price ASAP.

Yousef: Thanks for the info - you are a wealth of information!

John: That would be great. I would be interested in the black powdercoated version. Also, do they come in any other sizes?

Doug, the rims are U$S150 each (quite expensive). I know that Equippe4x4 carries them, you might want to wait 'till they open up shop in MA this summer to get them.

Sorry,

John

John, actually your price is not bad compare to what my brother paid for mine, exchange rate is a killer if you are a buyer from the states

Thanks John. Do you know whether they are available in 15 x 8 or only 16 x 7?
