my ED Sprint needs its original wheels!

Anyone know how to get hold of a set? I really only need 3, as my sprint had EF XR wheels on it with one sprint wheel as the spare when i bought it a year and a half ago. I imagine they'd be very hard to find, but im set on getting the originals rather than a set of 18''ers or something.

ps Ive posted this in the wheels/tires section too.

Re: my ED Sprint needs its original wheels!

pretty hard to find mate, I sold a set of 4 a few months back for about 850 so thats a rough guide. Best bet is the trading post I think.

Re: my ED Sprint needs its original wheels!

How did you come about owning/selling them?

I wonder what sort of nutter the first owner of my car was to get rid of them in the first place. Maybe they were stolen off the car........

Keep in ming that ROH have a exact copy of the wheel. (if copy is the right word)

If ya find them, you will have to go bigger, it's an unwriten rule

Re: my ED Sprint needs its original wheels!

Are you being serious? Ive heard a few people on these pages saying they wished ROH would make a bigger copy. I was under the impression they havent. That would be tops, 18'' sprint wheels! I spose ill give ROH a ring.

Re: my ED Sprint needs its original wheels!

Thr ROH Adler was the Original wheel, then Mick Webb used them on the SVO Falcons, with SVO cast into them.
The Adlers had ROH cast into them.
Then Ford Took them for the XR8 Sprint.
One of the best ever Ford rims IMHO.

Just a few for you guys.
