i do like that style on saph, looks time correct on them as a "roadcar", and not "rally" Wheel like the comp you have now, but wouldnt sell the comps either, since Nice to have the alternative to put them on if whant.

is it rondells? like escos wolf`s had over here in 18"...
sorry about spelling errors and other crap from me... I am from noway... I dont know better

Rondells always remind me of a wheel more suited to a 3dr or esc cos ... its just the flat spoke design ..

You are bang on Sigmund, they are Rondell 122's in 17" which are quite hard to find. The 18" versions are a bit more common but I believe the offset is completely wrong for a Saff.

Think the Rondells change the look of the car completely, but yeah will be keeping hold of the Comps. Also got the standard wheels as well....wife can't understand the need for 3 x sets of wheels lol

Nice. I do like them ;) 18" is not comon anymore either, and if correct type, they cost much now...
