Alloy front hubs

My kit runs cut down mk2 escort front struts as uprights, I'm looking to change the hubs to alloy, does anybody know if such a thing Exists?
The struts are normal mk2 escort not the rs type with the seperate steering arms, all the hubs I can find seem to be only for rs type.

IIRC the rally design ones were mk5 cortina dimensions and so were burton ones, which have different spacing between the bearings and a different disc offset.

Hispec do them, but IIRC also have their own disc offset, they might do a set with standard dimensions if you ask and can wait... i'm still waiting for a reply.

I've seen these; i have no idea how good they are but they described as a direct replacement, they didn't do them a couple years ago when i was looking for alloy hubs. The only thing i can see is the centre spigot is tapered, so the wheel will be boltcentric location only - assuming the pic is of the actual item.

Wrong type for my struts, they are for the rs models.
