    Would you not go for a set of the M sport wheels?

    David do you have a particular wheels style in mind?
    i have 2 problems searching new wheels
    1st, with brembo calipers there is not so much clearance with the wheel
    2nd and main problem at rear like an Mroadster i need a really deep wheel

    My choice would be the RC's there a more open style and you'll see more of the lovely calipers & discs IMO
    But hey as HT says they are all great looking wheels and I would be happy with any of them

    I like the LM's and nearly bought a set earlier this year. Like yourself with the ///M I would need around 15/20mm spacer at the rear to fill the arch out. Do you have a link to those and how much are they ?

    If you can't make up your mind, get the ones that are easiest to keep clean. Frankie

    The Zitos look good on the car and different from the others which you see a lot of (on the internet not so much on the road, I only see sad looking standard Z's round here!)

    Have some pics somewhere of a z on Zitos, will dig them up.

    At ET20 you will still need a 15mm to 20mm spacer on the rear. So I would choose the one that you think looks the best, I went for these ET20 at rear
