Im interested in buying some split rims for the S2. Not decided what size i want yet so im after a few pictures of S series with split rims in all sizes. What size were the OEM OZ splits, 15 or 16"? ALso do you think 17" would be too big (car would be lowered). Also any other interesting wheel pics of non standard alloys would be appreciated as im open to a few ideas.

Thanks.

Prefer a more "classic" look myself, small wheels fat tyres (think all factory options were 15") but hope you find something you like....

Thanks Mike, they are not a bad price either, are you running 205/60's on yours? Problem is nothing wrong with mine so will have to think of a reason to justify changing them smile

I know......taking the originals off love to store them so that when the time comes to move her on she will have pristine orginal wheels biggrin

"Show Special" £300 the set a couple of years ago!

tyres are 205 x 60 Toyo CF1's, seemed to hang on alright around Spa a few weeks ago wink

Finishing touch I bought a set of these recently.
A degree of "anti theft" but mainly less chance of damaging finish when fitting/removing wheels

Anthracite looks OK with green - not so sure with your blue though. (IMO obviously!)

Thought about the anthracite but decided on the plain silver with my green car.

think they are ET 0. got thin (6mm?) spacers at front but can't remember if I "needed" them or was just to push them out in the arches a bit?


Apologies for hi-jacking this post a little wink
