Liked this look when you first posted them a while ago. How do the weights compare with say TD1.2s Barny? 

Following this thread with interest as eventually want to go to 2* sets of 13" rather than 1*15" and 1* 13"

Not sure Dave, will weigh them and let you know, but I don't think they're particularly light (hence why they're road wheels). Would support a set of wet/road tyres on these and CXR's or Force rims for competition though.

My trackday R888's are on some Peugeot 205 Speedlines.... I like the look of them more in "british racing yellow!"  them more than the   Team Dynamics with the Road R1R tyres.

And the racy Comp CXR 13's. Think 6 and 7 wide 185 and 205 / 60 x 13. Toyo R888R and R888 super softs...

Q,  if you fit 13" wheels you'll have very little choice of road tyres.  13" wheels are better for track tyres as there are more available.  As you only drive on the road I would suggest 15" wheels as they are plentiful and cheap.

13" revolutions loosely attached to allow car to be moved into the sunshine during build. :sun:

205 width on the rear and 185 on the fronts. Need a refurb but will look nice when done. I hope...

I have two vastly different wheel sets for my car. For the street I use 13x7 Revolutions with 205/60-13 Toyo RA1's. When competing I use a set of Real Racing Wheels in a 13x10 with 21x9x13 Avon slicks.

One set rides very nicely and handles very well....the other set rides very poorly but sticks like glue. Both are fun.

The wheels are 13" John Brown Wheels Smoothie's (67.1mm centre bore) in 5.5J ET20 (7.5Kg) for the front and 7J ET0 (8.3Kg) for the rear with Nankang NS-2R in 185/60R13 all around.

Cool! I thought long and hard about those.. In silver on a BRG car they would look superb.
