Wheels are called "Blindo", you can get them online from Silverline.

They are the same that military use for their heavy duty landies, apparently the strongest alloys you can get.

They come in Anthracite or Sand colour as standard, but am not sure if you can get them any other colours.

Not Cheap, but I think they are good!

I got them sent fitted with BFG All Terrains. good all round tyre, and not too bad on motorways either.
