Well...seems that the R isn't the easiest car to shop wheels for, so I thought I'd solicit the help of all my fellow Swedespeeders to help me out.

It would be very cool if you could list a bit of info about the wheels that you post...and of course a pic of the wheel and one of them on the car would be great!

Spacer info would also be appreciated...

cheers.

These are the wheels I like ... I'm still waiting on word whether or not SSW will produce them to fit the R again.

18x8 Ronal R41's. Factory-ready for R-fitment w/42mm offset (no spacers required). Lightweight at approximately 22 lbs. per wheel http://********************/smile/emthup.gif and very well constructed (the same manufacturer as our stock Pegasus wheels, TUV certified, high-quality hyper-silver finish, blah, blah, blah). Also fairly reasonable at ~$250 each:

I almost bought a set of R41s, always thought they were good looking wheels (best of Ronal line for R) and reasonable $, but I thought they were closer to 24 lbs in 18x8, one of the reaons I didn't go with them way back when.

Did you get a chance to weigh them with a digital scale before mounting them?

The look sharp though http://********************/smile/emthup.gif , similar to Chrono HTs.... hmmm...

22 lbs. is what Gary at Ronal told me. I never double-checked.

EDIT: I purchased this set from Scott Hart at IPD in Portland. I had my tires mounted in Portland before the drive home. Otherwise, I probably would have weighed them out of curiosity.

Now you have me wondering...

Re: R Wheel Gallery ~ Post Your Favorite Pics of Wheels Available for the R. (wrxownr)

These SSW's are awesome!!! Anyone have an idea on what they used to cost?

I'm going with some 18's and I would like to keep the cost for the set of wheels around $1K, if possible! I know my price range really limits my selection, but I plan to spend a bit of time on the track & I don't want to freak out if I go over the curb & bend a lip or something.

On my last car I ran BBS 3-piece forged wheels that looked AWESOME, but I bent two of them one night on the freeway in Minneapolis and it really hurt to replace them!
