Wheels that fit the SVX

There have been some members here that are wondering about what wheels fit the SVX. I know that if we have the offset, we can figure out if they will fit, but what about looks. If you have some wheels that are good looking and fit the SVX, please post a picture and give the size so others can see what some of you have used.

Post the following:

Price
Size
Offset
Brand of wheel
Name of wheel
Who sells the wheel

Thanks and I hope this will help some of you.

I dunno about others Earl, but I have fitted wheels that are originally made for Mercedes Benz. I did a little work on them, on the level of the bolts (i increased the diameter of the bolts holes) and a ring on their center. But this is me and my stupid ideas... I just wanted the change and to put good rims in my car. (we have some holes in roads here, so i need a good rim to withstand them)

Price= $400
Size= 17X8.5
Name= OZ Racing MAE
Seller= you can find it on Ebay



P.S: it comes also in 17X8 size

Also, I blew a Koni front shock hitting a pot-hole and the wheel came through just fine. Have had it up to about 95 since then (no track time yet) with no vibration whatsoever. I think it's still round.

I have Subydude on my EBAY sellers list. He seems to have a good list of nice looking rims. I'm really liking this thread since i have plans on purchasing 17" rims sometime next year. Good idea Earl to start this thread. I think the color of these bronze rims would look even better on my Claret......Keep the pics coming. I'm keeping my eyes open for offsets of 48mm or better.....

Look in the locker of svxxx26 to see the Lexus SC430
wheels he put on his SVX. I believe they are 18".
He got them from Dayle.

Wow, those OZ SL's look really good on your SVX makalii!

...I really wanted to get some mesh BBS's, but the Superleggeras look great, and are much cheaper than the BBS LM's I want.
