15Kg each?! :shock:

Bugger that! If/when I get some new wheels, I'll be aiming sub 9Kg 17's. (For go, rather than show.)

Those 19's are very pretty though.

Definately getting a set of OZ's next time round unless I get lucky and bag myself a bargain from Hartge or AC. Might look at Speeline as well and maybe Sparco they do racing wheels for rally cars pretty good quality and very light.

Did you need any mods to fit them? eg. arch rolling, spacers?

Been offered a set cheap and might take up the offer.
No need for any mods, just fit and drive!

In my opinion its th 208M buts you've gotta have an M Sport, I'd love to put them on my SE but I think they'd not look right.

So for all us non M Sporters out there the 17 inch 141's are my favorite - I think the 1 Series looks best with chunky rims and you dont seem to see many cars with the 141's.

My car's wearing 142's at the moment, couldn't find any 141's... until 2 days after I bought my new wheels through ebay.

Typical!
Damage my car, get a kick clean in the face...

Those BBS's do look great on just about any car, but also loving the schnitzer and Hartge rims, there's something about the wheels that are made specifically for the marque
