Helmut,<p>Hoping to tap into your wheel expertise. I am interested in a set of forged rims for my 2004 S60 R. Wheels are a little over 18lbs each and will clear the calipers (ET 40). However, it has 2 bolt patterns drilled in them 5x100 and 5x108. Any strength issues with wheels with universal bolt patterns? Hoping they will be safe/strong enough to use for the street and occasional track days. Thanks in advance! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Dave

Sorry I did not see this until now.<p>Who makes them is the first thing I would ask. Not really any strength<br>issues I would be more concerned with proper wheel hub interface

Looking at a set of Motoforge SG10 wheels. I believe they were made in Southern CA. I know they currently have a factory in Taiwan. Thanks!<p><BR><BR>

I think if you ask 95% of people would not like to use redrilled wheels. The strength is not really the problem it is more just how it looks and that it is <br>not perfect.
