There was a guy in Morphett Vale that had a set of Convo Pros for sale when I spoke to him in February. He offered them to me when I bought some other stuff from him but they are not my thing. Could give you his number if you like.
 
Cheers, Craig.




 Hey mate that was me who was selling them, (although im in aberfoyle park not morphet vale)
i sold those wheels to a mate in a matter minuets to a mate that also has a red sundowner, 
 



No, pretty sure it wasn't you Sundowner. Guy I was dealing with didn't have Escorts.......had every other car under the sun though. Also had Mk1 Cortinas.
 
Was a memorable trip. Melbourne to Adelaide and back in 24hrs.
 
Cheers, Craig.

Good afternoon all.
Well after 6 months of hassles with trying to get my wheels 5x 15x7 GTR superlites finished it has all come to a crashing halt.
1st month spent waiting for them to do another run of the wheels,3 weeks to make, paint and polish,then to find out that all the wheels in the batch (500 superlites and GTR's) had a defect and were self destructing at 80kph during checks and had to be redone!!!! Another month passed, WINNER!! wheels are ready,then get the phone call that a new employee had packed my custom rims in standard wheel boxes and they are lost in the warehouse so they will have to go through every box to find them!!!! three week only to find out they have only found three,at this point i'm ready to level the whole factory in a violent and spectacular way,advised they will be found,as they are doing a audit due to the sale of performance to the chinese company.
So to end the rant, my mate who used to deliver for performance had supposedly organised to get my wheels  as part of the $4000 they still owed him,so he went in today to get them only to find My custom 5 x 4x108+ 12 gold with polished lip are in fact... 2x yes only two rims!!!!!!! are 5x108+15 gold with polished lip!!!!!!!! and the icing on the cake is because Performance are now sold to the chinese and run they had no clue  and tried to sell him my rims for $750 for two!!!! he was also there to collect 4 other sets of custom wheels for his mates and all of them were wrong, offset, colours and machining. SO time to start again on the hunt for the perfect set.


Have you tried
https://www.facebook.com/dragway.splatt 
,they will build your wheels to suit   

UNDERSTEER is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. OVERSTEER is when you hit the wall with the rear. HORSEPOWER is how fast you hit the wall. TORQUE is how far you take the wall with you.

Thanks for the number Craig, gave him a call he still has the them at a good price too, but the fronts are 15x4 so will have to do some thinking, I want them but the sacrifice in the escorts handling will be a big part of the thinking process

With all the bad experience with Performance, what would be the option then for buying Superlite look wheels new now?
I am finally (after 5 years) nearing needing wheels for my MK1 build and want superlite style. 
Any recommendations?
Thanks

probably the best looking superlite style in my opinion, part of me still wishes I decided on them.

Thanks for all the replies! 15"s are good.
 
The Rotas are definitely a nice looking wheel, so are they Koya.
 
I wasn't able to get the price to 800 aus from JBW. Maybe the dollar is too shot at moment?

You mean from R&R? Yes the dollar was a little better at the time I bought mine but should be close??
