    @PeeBee. How hard would it be to convince an engineer at, a manufacturer like ROH to produce double drilled Sunraysias.

    If you can't baffle them with brilliance, befuddle them with bullshit.

    The legal certification process would probably kill it against the physical cost and demand for the product. They are not going to put their business at risk unless it is 100% certified i would guess. lLoking at the website of the mob mentioned, they don't sell rims but actually provide a detailed installation instruction set. There is no disclaimer regards fitness or legality to use on road so I guess they put the onus on the user to validate the item. They can't control how the unit is installed or how it is used - they probably have legal opinion that says they are protected from a liability perspective. At the end of the day anything can be made to work, but what is out of the suppliers hand is the condition and style of wheel that is being modified. If you purpose made the rims like you suggest it would be straight forward but need some investment. Why not ring a VASS engineer and ask the question?

    I have asked the VASS engineers at work (we have heaps of them here) and they all say " while drilling one additional hole will not compromise the rim, validation needs to be done, and the cost vs benefit (ie sales) means that no rim OEM will spend the $"
    Their advise is to run with the internal bead locks and keep your head down from the police.
    One guy there even got pulled over, and the police did not ping him on his external beadlocks!
    Interestingly, Club 4X4 insurance, claim that they will insure non engineered mods, go figure.
