They don't come in silver in those sizes? That seems weird.

Nope. I agree. I'm waiting on a quote on a set of 18x9.5" WedsSport TC105N's right now. They're basically the same weight as the RPF1's (some sources say they're lighter, some say they're .4lbs heavier, so... the same) and appear to be offered in silver. Sounds like they'll be a bit more expensive, but I love the look of them. We'll see. I need to sell off the rest of my MINI stuff before I buy anything for the new car.

Edit: Here is a picture of one with a square setup at et35. He's running odd tire sizes, but the rear is pretty much what I'm after. Also, these are gunmetal, and I think I'd go with silver. Decisions, decisions!

Feeling a little giddy right now... just bought wheels. They're lightweight, good offsets, and unlike the RPF1's... they're rare. Seriously, I shouldn't be so happy about spending my hard earned money, but I AM!

Also, met some local "FT86" guys on Sunday and I'm swapping trunks with another brand new silver car. I never wanted the spoiler, but don't want to deal with removing it and trying to match paint. Trunk swap coming next weekend.

Spoilerless is king going by that pic above. These are so rare on UK roads. Looking forward to seeing yours evolve.

The new wheels arrived, in less than "perfect" condition as described. Looks like I'll be refinishing them this winter...

Great shots. Guy on the tractor looks like he is about to jump off.
