Just about to part with more of the Pension, looking to make the jump from A/T to Mud's just for this next trip know the tyre i want but reluctant to fit them to my existing Alloys as they are running so good with the A/T on at the moment so want to get a new set of Alloys for the muds, do not want steel as have tried them and rebound effect is not good, the A/T alloys were the stock ones from Nissan anybody have any ideas of a really good strong alloy.

I only ran my ROH monsoons for 25,000k's but went playing a couple of times. They didn't mark easily and were a good looking wheel. If you go down the ROH track, and seeing your in the sunshine state, I can get you a good price on a set of these.

Cheers.

Gday Para,

Yeah a little bit. Hanging out for another one though. You can see on my ex-rig pic the type I had. They are the ROH Monsoons. Have a bit of a poke around. If you like the monsoons, let me know and I'll get you the price.

cheers

G'day Chris,

Been thinking, are you the same Chris that couldn't fit an EO wheel cover some time ago? Mate didn't mean to upset you to the point of selling the truck!

Hope you get another soon.

Kind regards

Excuse the ignorance, but what's the rebound effect? Don't hardcore 4wders use steelies because they are tougher? Isn't that what you would want your muddies attached to?

Hi D-Jack just going on experince i have tried both and about 10kg difference in weight on each rim and on rough road's that a lot of extra weight to go up and down with the shocks etc, steel are supposed to be better because they are stronger and if need to be repaired can be belted back into some sort of shape, my experince is that i have not had any problems with the alloys and no punctures in the lst 60,000k so hence the question if i am going to buy another set of alloys what are the strongest avalable maybe its just a case of the way one drives.

I've worked a deal with the importors, so you could get them through me. (Brisbane Southside) Or you can probally order them through some tyre/wheel outlets near you. We do custom caravan/trailer work, also small production runs for the bigger van companies.
Cheers.
