    I've wanted a spare set of wheels for the car for ages and always kept my eye out for a cheap set going second hand but all the cheap ones I found lately where pretty crap, and since I needed 18"s it did narrow the field slightly. Since I have to buy new tyres in the next 3 weeks (Aust. Championships comming up) and with a little bit of life left on the old ones I decided to bite the bullet and get new wheels to put the new rubber on, leaving my old wheels as spares, or to be used for fun/play days.

    Trawling through fleabay I came accross a nice set of 18"x8.5 and 18"x9.5 with 30 and 35 offsets (super flush) and with a price of just $800 I couldn't pass them up. Picked them up yesterday and ordered tyres ($2,200, 18" R-Comps aren't cheap), the hardest part was deciding between the grey or bronze.......

    I remember when they were released through Access Autoworks a few years ago now, well over $1000 new.
    Nicely priced these days.

    Nice wheels indeed Pete, I believe Ron has the same with his street tyres.

    I have actually seen these wheels develop cracks/fractures something to watch out for especially if they are your track rubber.

    Got them through Access. Price has come down quite a bit.

    Yes, they are the same as the ones Ron has and that UAS sells. Thanks for the tips about the cracks, I'll keep an eye on them.
