Cheers for link batou but sticking with 18’s.
Yeah, I can understand that. Shame they are so rare, stunning wheels.

OZ and TD wheels seem to be a default choice in the UK, used to always irk me when people don't cast the net further out. I'd prefer something from Rota than those. :grin2:

Most import wheels are silly money but you can do well on ebay now and again. My short list would be any of the following:

Enkei RPF1
SSR Type C
Advan RG
Work Emotion cr kai
Volk te37 sl or CE28N

I imported a used set of equally rare 18” Prodrive Forged GC-010E in 8J ET43 (perfect fitment imho) from Yahoo Japan auction through Jesse Streeter (Google him) for about £1k landed after duties and whatnot.

They’re actually made by Rays and are about 8KG per wheel.

If I was after another set that’s exactly what I’d be doing again 👍

Spoke to enkei about fitment they recommend 8x18 et 45 will fit over brembo’s and clear arches they are also hub centric so no need for spigots.
