Picked up a set of hollowspoke twists.
Also like the current wheels.
Car is running Bilstein PSS10 and is around GT2 height.
Which do you prefer?
Thanks.

P.S.
I could potentially keep both sets with rubber on and rotate but I also have the original solid spoke Twists in the shed and to be honest I think I have a problem with wheels as I've also got four sets of 1.9 205 Gti wheels, a set of 405 Mi16 wheels, three sets of 1.6 205 wheels, a set of 205 Dimma wheels, two sets of Team Dynamics for the Clio, 9 205 T16 gravel wheels and *some/a sufficient quantity* of E36 BMW rims for the drift car. I think I need to sell some wheels.

P.P.S.
Think I'll feel the weight saving of @2.2kg per corner on the road.
(Opinions/experience on ride comfort/handling welcome)

Tough one, I like both and normally I do like to have something different but on your car the Hollow spokes is the way Id go IMO. OR get a GT2 wing...…. Cool

Still need to buy this from you when your finished. Thumb Cool

I'd fit the lighter rims and sell the others. You might want to sell some of the others too, unless you have loads of storage...

I say this, but I've got two sets of rims for the 997 (summer and winter), two for the GTI (summer and winter), and three for the Mini (summer, winter, track), so I only have max 4 sets in the shed at any one time.

I think part of my problem is that I have storage. You tend to get a bit lazy when you've got space to chuck stuff Hand

GT all day long! But I sold up, and sleep better at night, for a 130i so my taste may not count Very Happy

I thought I’d like the GT wheels, but actually prefer the turbos. Looks too fussy IMO.

BTW did you know a ghost is driving the car in the first pic? Who you gonna call? Very Happy
