Rojac, I wasn't aware that ROH were doing mine spec steelies. The only ones of note that I have located have been King Rims. These were rated to 1600kgs but were not endorsed for road use or at speeds greater than 80 kph.

Cheers Mick

According to the ROH rep at the 4x4/camping/boat show held in Adelaide a couple of weeks ago, they do.

Got a brochure but at the time just put it into a bag to review later only to find it had no specs.

Am looking at 16 x 6, to replace my splitties, whilst keeping as close as possible to the std diameter.

Here is a link to ROH which shows their Mine Approved rims and sizes available.

Unfortunately as Rojac says they don't show any specs for thickness, steel etc

They are also availabe in black (known as Blak Trak)

Thanks Ken. Interesting that they have managed to provide photographs of the wheels showing everything but the load rating which is on the opposite side of the rim.

I have two x ROH track 2's and they are rated at 1250 kgs. They are not heavy duty any more than standard steelies from most other manufacturers. They are "Mine approved" and not "Mining Spec - Heavy duty". Having said that my experience is that they are a well constructed and quality rim.

If you are after a heavy duty/high load rim, then have a look at the King Rim Mine Spec. It is rated to 2100kgs.

Hi Rojac
Im going Kings rims again on my next build a PX Ranger as they are 7mm not 6mm with a load raring of 1200kg per wheel. I had them on my 80 series tourer for 18 years with no rust spots.They are good to talk to on the phone at their HQ. My last lot on my 80 were made in Mexico stamped inside.

Just as an aside, there is no such thing as "Mine Spec". Some individual mining operations might test a product and decide that they like it at put in on their list of approved for use products, but there is no minimum specification for wheels or any other product that certifies it for use on a mine site.
