ROH RT Wheels

I am thinking of getting these for my EL XR6. The website isnt very informative though. It just tells me you can get them in 16", 17" and 18". Why don't they have prices for each of the sizes, aswell as telling how wide they are?

Could prces be subject to what tyre you get with it and where you get it from? I went to Bob Janes in Geelong and the bloke said it was $2200 for a set of 17" fitted, but he didn't tell me what Tyre would be on it.

I was just wondering does anyone else have this wheel, or experience with ROH's? I will shop around and look for the best deals, but I would have though ROH would have a RRP for thier wheels and put it on their website.

I would presume the offset would be right, and a nice set of 18" would fit on my car? An EF XR6 which was white like mine had these wheels on it, 17" and they looked awesome.

That's another thing. On the website it doesnt even say what finishes it they have. They just mention something about the new shadow chrome, which looked like to be on this white EF i saw.

I would have thought they would shwo images of all the finishes on the website, or atleast list them. I havtn even seen the polished chrome, It would probably look nicer im not sure, but the shadow chrome would be easier to keep clean.

So I am not sure what I want yet mate.

Id say they would be available in 16x7, 17x7, 17x8 and 18x8.

18s would look good, but expect a $2500+ depending on where you go and what quality tyres you get.

we got the shadow chromes on our fairmont and i reckon they're pretty easy to clean. we get a lot of brake dust from the drilled and slotted rotors too. being this colour means the dust dosn't stand out as much as polished. change over for 16x7 with 225/50 dunlops was $1500, the 17x8 with 235/45 falkens was another $700....that was for 4. we went 16's because we do a lot of kms each year and the tyre bloke reckoned we'd get twice the milage on 16's. but for a town car i'd definatly get 17 or 18's for wank value. these were brisbane prices about 14 months ago.

I had a set of 17" shadow chrome ROH RT wheels fitted with Falken 235/45 tyres 18 months ago. They were $2700. The Falkens gripped extremely well but they only last around 20,000km and the last time I had my tyres changed they were $1,000 a set. I now drive on a harder compound that I have been told that should last 40,000km and were only $800 a set.

These prices were in Adelaide through City Discount Tyres.

Here's a crap quality pic:

I went back to Bob Jane's today after work and asked another bloke for some info. 235/40/18 were $3300 with Firenza Tyres. I don't know if these tyres are good, I have hardly even heard of them.

I am no told that 17x8 with tyres (not sure what brand) were $2400. I still wasn't expecting to pay so much. I'll definately shop around. These wheels really look good. Still wan't to compare the shaddow chrome and the polished.

Nak302: Brake dust might be harder to clean off on the polished chrome, but the pizza plates usually stop alot of brake dust coming throguh. What brakes have you got? Couldn't the pizza plates fit?

Sounds like your getting ripped.
Try every tyre place you can, and even the smaller ones you wouldnt normally think of.

I got the best deal from where I least expected, and it was just 5mins from my house Quotes I got varied by over $500.

never heard of firenza either mate. probably korean or taiwanese or the like. $2400 for 17's sounds reasonable to me as long as you get decent tyres in the deal.
my brakes are dba cross drilled and slotted rotors with premium pads. i've been told elsewhere on the forum that performax are a better choice to reduce dust. so i'll try them on my next pad change. my old fairmont wheels had the "pizza plates" but i got the dba disc's so i'm not covering them up for the sake of a bit of elbow grease every week or so. as martin says shop around, ten bucks worth of phone calls could save you a coupla hundred.good luck.

I recently bought some 16 x 6.5 alloys with 205/45 Good year Eagle F1's for a Mazda Astina. Bob Jane, Goodyear Tyres, Beaurepaires and the like all quoted around $1500-$1800 (with trade of the brand new tyres fitted as standard to the car). I shopped around and got a deal of $1140 (including trade) from Tempe tyres in Sydney....It pays to shop around a little.
