We looked and couldn’t find what we wanted so we decided to make our own. These are 15″ diameter 3 piece wheels made from 6061 T6 aluminium with custom Rorty centres and ding rings.
There are a number of advantages to 3 piece wheels, including the ability to vary off-set and rim width to suit your ride and easy repair of a rim half without having to replace the whole wheel. The up front investment is a little more but well worth it!
The ding rings are optional and are designed to strengthen the outer rim against rock / obstacle strikes without adding excessive weight. Beadlocks are also an option but we don’t think they are necessary with properly inflated and speed rated tyres on these light buggies.
