Who makes these steel rims?

http://www.paddockspares.com/pp/WHEE...y_Modular.html


Are they a US made or UK made Steel Rim? Also how are they if anyone knows? I have 4 on my 110 and am looking for a 5th for the spare. The spare I currently have is a Speedy wheel with spokes. Is ti silly to want your spare to match the rest?

I've been there my friend, hours of research ...

Those are made by a Brazilian steel company called
Mangel. The funny part is it's very difficult to find a
distributor in America.

I bought mines in the UK, they crossed the pond twice .

Pete, if you're looking for another, ping Doug -- those seem to wind up on a lot of rovers in the UK. I did remove the little rubber nubb things from the one's on your truck before painting.

Why not the gulfcoastrovers.com rims? I mean you loose the little "modular" screws but who's lookin'

For the cost of powdercoating and one rim locally (sorta)

I have a set of those. They are a fairly run of the mill steel wheel. Not very robust. The offset is pretty good though with around 4" of backspacing. Mine were through a little bartering...

He looked but ALAS he couldn't find one. So they had little nubbins in the small holes?

Define "not very..."

Short of Wolf wheels what are the desirable rims for the 110?
