Hi, anyone know the web address for Sunraysia wheels, buggered if I can find it on Google.

If not, does anybody know who makes cheap, Sunraysia pattern 15" rims with different optional offsets? Bought 'em before for my F truck, can't seem to find who makes 'em. After 15"x8" with a wider offset to the outside to increase track slightly.

Cheers

Thanks Truckster, but I've already found that one. For the record, it's a Barry Crocker of website too BTW, no pics of the grey steel colour, no dimensions either. Best info ROH can give is a 'Navara' or 'Toyota' offset. Handy! All froth and bubble, no info.

Who actually makes Sunraysia's? Any ideas?

Looked at Speedie's too, no steel apparently.

From distant memory offsets were measured in +8, +20 or something similar.

"Sunraysia" has become a generic term ...... several manufacturers make them.

"Sunraysia" came from the 70's. My recollection is that there was a company from that area that started producing white spoke steel wheels that were the only alternative to split rims. The name has stuck.

ROH "Trac2" and Speedy "Desert Rat" are the common "sunraysia" wheels. The Speedys are usually cheaper, but come from Taiwan. I think the ROH are still made in Adelaide.

G'Day V8

I went looking to see if these wheels were available in 17" to fit my current model Prado.

I rang ROH and talked to a really helpful guy in their Development area who told me that no they don't make them in 17" yet but I was certainly not the first to ask!

He said that they were monitoring market demand against the cpsts of development and production and would probably come out with one in Prado size in 12 to 18 months. That was about 6 months ago.

Not trying to Hijack your post but to anyone reading this that wants Sunraysias in this larger size, give ROH a call and express your interest. This is one of the main ways they guage market size when determining new product to launch.

Currently the only alternative I know in this size is a special import of toyota steels from Europe, or grinding a couple of mm off the brake calipers and fitting 16".

Situation has gotta improve given the numbers these things are selling and the fact that many more models are going to bigger rims.
