i wonder if anyones taken the wheel shop to court for supplying them with that quality of rim?

sigs are nice, but everyones done them. find something different that hasn't been done that often, like wh granges or vy/x gto's.

they look like the ROH non HSV version and ROH make the genuine wheels. There is another non-genuine version that has extra little holes around the wheelnut holes and the sides of the spokes have two angles, not 1.

no such thing as ROH fakes....?

There are plenty of china specials and ebay sigs.

theyre either roh/hsv or not.

but yeah, 2nd hand genuine HSV rims can be picked up for nice prices so I don't see any reason not to buy them genuine. nice rims.

but to be honest, look best on calais

i went to accosiated wheel and tyre today and they can do a 19inch wheel and tyre package on any hsv style wheel including ve gts and pentagon for $2100

they are a non genuine hsv wheel but they have a lifetime structual garuntee
(and if u look at the first image of the broken sigs look at the size of the buckle in the rim anyway)

they said to me that 20 wont fit without fitting coilovers so thats the reason why im picking 19s

and they do finance so for a second year apprentice that is a very good thing

If they put a warranty then it can't be too bad, but as I've said already you can find genuine HSV rims with tyres for 'bargain prices' (although the amount of tread left can be sometimes be quite sh*t), they come up on here in the WA section, other Holden forums and Quokka...

20's fit on vl's.

just make sure u get 225/30/20 tyres and trim the rear seat bolt ends off and you can go as low as you want with them assuming the offset is correct

all those broken rims look pretty abused though, but still shouldn't happen.

Good to know about ROH only doing the genuine ones. I'd been told they did both.

Yeah no need to worry.

VT GTS wheels have the HSV logo stamped inside, and from memory also ROH somewhere in there?

I thiiiink.....unless I saw it somewhere else, meh.

Mazza of course VE GTS rims will fit, theres tonnes of people running around the the 19" version..so do get them. Your red VLT will look sweet with them
