Has anyone used Force racing wheels?

I am looking at getting a set for the Hillclimber replacement & just wondered if anyone had any experience of these wheels or comments before I put my hand in my pocket.

A friend had some 7x13 wheels the quality was good. When one rim was damaged a new outer rim was purchased from them with no problems.

Cant fault them . Supplied me with some outer rims , far cheaper than having them polished and straightened by a " specialist "firm.

Carl is a bit of an abrasive prick on the internet. The wheels (I had 7x10s) are absolutely spot on. He's a craftsman.

We have a dozen of them in various widths (all 10” diam) and have had no problems. Unfortunately I don’t have the skills to post photos.

Called to visit Carl on the way to Blyton 2017 to pick up a set of wheels and I have to say he couldn't have been more welcoming.Full tour of his workshop and took loads of time to chat.Could have easily given us the wheels and closed the door but I have to say I thought he was a top fella.He'll get my business in the future for sure.
