Staff holidays - We will be closed for 2 weeks from 16th August to 30th August.  We will not be able to dispatch orders in this period but you can still place orders and email will be monitored.

Hope update - 25th May

Today Hope sent out an email saying that wheel orders will now take 6 to 8 weeks to be built.  This is a big increase in lead time (today we received wheels that were ordered exactly 3 weeks ago) so it looks like Hope have just received a huge wheel order.  We have build dates for orders placed up to yesterday and the most recent orders have lead times of around 5 weeks, with just 20FIVE wheels taking a week longer.

This only applies to factory built wheels, hand built wheels (built by me) take about a week.
