You may have been through this before but just in case please indulge me for a second will you.

After bending a steel rim, fixing it by hitting it with the axe and then putting the tyre back on and driving almost 2000K home I wouldn't put alloy rims on my car for quids.

We don't go looking for rocks to climb etc but it is very easy to bend a rim in the rocky tracks of the high country.

Cheers mate.

Get your drift PJ, but was thinking of having a second set,---steel for the tracks, and alloy for home----extravagant I know, but why not?

Not extravagant. We have two sets one wih AT's and the others with STMaxx's. I find it easier to change wheels than change tyres. However ours are both steel. I was considering selling one but it's like a favourite chair. Just haven't got around to it.

IFS Rims --But now that you mention it, are they interchangeable?

No, definately not interchangeable. Make sure you buy rims for IFS.

Cheers

IFS and RFS have a completely different offset, can be easily seen if you look at where the wheel nuts/studs run compare to the outer edge of the rim, IFS wheel nuts are almost flush with the outer edge of the rim where as RFS wheel nuts are far more recessed in to the rim

I think ROH make them here in Oz. The ROH Impact Silver looks just like the factory mag.

find your local ROH or CSA dealer, they'll have a range to choose from, or look for secondhand ones on ebay and Gumtree.
don't be concerned about their strength, i have travelled The Cape, The Simpson, The Gulf and many other corrugated roads inbetween with alloys on my 105 series Crusier.

probably should have mentioned to be sure and get ones load rated for your vehicle, there's some out there that might fit the vehicle but not meet the load rating requirement. you'd have to do a search on the net or ask a tyre dealer for the correct irating nfo, as i'm not sure what it is off the top of my head.
