Why shouldn't it? Thats where the foci started from europe. Hit up Batinc.net. Or better yet hit up Trevor @ Tirerack. They are one of the sponsors here. In the end your paying 'bout the same & it going to take a little while to get here.

My Racelands are from Belgium... Couldn't read a lick of the instructions or warranty info. They work just fine!

They fit just fine.


nothing is different until you get to the newer model years over there. Their newer models are completely different, ours aren't. That bit of info isn't really relevant for you though.

They should all fit perfectly, however some have had to hone out the front knuckles to fit racelands in. They are a very tight fit, however they do go in.
