Those rims were sold through ATU in early 2007 !

Actually planned on getting a set, but then I got magnesios.... :-)

They had a tag of aroung 200 Euro each, pretty sweet price ! I think ALUETT.

I saw some sweet RONDEL as well, verry similar ones ....

# 058 looks familiar ! # 081 is a sweet one as well, especially in black powder..:D

My advice would be to go to a company called CCW and get their Classic three piece wheel in race trim. They essentially gut the whole wheel out and you end up 2 pounds lighter. In addition, get 17 in front and 18 in the rear. Better than that, get 16 in front and 17 in the rear with lightwieght r compound tires. With our cars, the suspension is very delicate as far as changes. My current setup is 18 in front and 19 in the rear and I can see it affected it negatively, but it sure does look great. Now that it is 5 years later, I wished I had done the opposite and made a set-up exactly as spec'ed for the Sport 300. Wheels that weight less than 20 lbs make our cars a missle. Wheels that weight 18 lbs make our cars scary. Here is a pic of the wheels on my 993. This is the best part, these wheels cost about $2300 for an entire set and they are real 3-piece.

Cheers,

RONDELL... looks alot like the last set of wheels lotus used. I like the deep bed...

any link for CCW - I'd be interested in a big wide set of rears.. for the right price :D

might jst settle for some OZ v8 rears if I can find any for an okay price ...

Yeah they look nice - any data on them ?

Would love a set of Novas (they look similar enough) but ideally I wanted something more available and lighter then the Saturns - any clues pricewise ?

I looked at the website, judging from the "Datenblatt" the rim will not fit on the Esprit, 18" has a 5x120 config.... :cheers: . I would assume that they be around 290 Euro each ( List price.. )
