Nice wheels.
Light 3 piece construction with forged hub.
I bought them for the track to save a few pounds of rotational mass.
They are good for that purpose, except the they have a "concealed" valve stem, which makes them a better street wheel (too hard to monitor and tune tire pressure at the track). One of the detail shots shows a little "button" where the removable stem attaches. Very sleek for the street.
I have had them on the car only twice.
THey have custom center caps, not shown in the pix.
One has a paint chip (fell over the 1st time I was mounting it)











Here is the "button"

I paid more than $500 ea.

Re: R Wheels, 3 piece, custom (fr Svenske), 18" (SleepR)

Jeff what rotors are you using, slotted, and how do you like them for the track, and street? What pads are you using with them?

how much do they weigh and I think you forgot to put a price?
Weight: I'll weigh one this weekend.
Price: Make me a reasonable offer.

Rear one piece slotted I think I got from EuroSport Tuning. Front two piece slotted were from Svenske, but really came from EuroSport as well, I believe. They are not full floating, but I never had any problem with "warping" even though I eventually completely toasted the front calipers (nice gold color), rebuilt them once, and now have new grey ones.
I NEVER experience brake fad on the track (+40 events).
Only real brake complaint I have had is when using PF97 pads in wet wheather, the brake dust fuses with the paint on the wheels and CANNOT be removed. Looks pretty bad. Need to switch pads before returning to the street. Also the PF97s are very abrasive when cool (more adhesive when hot), so will chew through the rotors pretty fast - look Ma, no slots!

18x8 iirc and they were made by the infamous SVR.
SVR had them made by P5 Wheels:

They weigh about 18.5 pounds on my bathroom scale.

Are the wheels still available? - Need another set for my summer tires on my V70R. Do they fit the 04+ models?

Images from last year at Lime Rock Park, turning lap times at 2:05, with the lightweight wheels.
