You can order them from the UK. They weigh more than our stock wheels plus the offset is wrong.

They do look easy to clean though. ;)

Those are very common in the UK, I like them alot.

How much does the offset differ? I had hoped to buy a used set at some point.

Apart from the offset issues there's another..

Can't use those on the Fed-Elise (or 111R for that matter) as these wheels have a very low weight carrying capacity.

It's even not allowed to fit these on the 111S, only on the base 120HP Rover K-series S2 are they allowed (also these are the standard wheels on the base 120HP car).

Bye, Arno.

I think the stock wheel is fantastic both static and in motion. It looks like nothing else on the road except maybe the Aston Martin DB7 wheel. Coincidence???

Sounds like weight saving gone a bit too far. Are they safe to support a fully loaded car (two people and gear)? Hit a bump in a turn and they fold up?
