Very nice wheel. > proper performance rim, not just looks but weight and strength too. I think they might actually be Mille Miglia (Were they the company that made the thin five spoke Viggen wheels?). There are no markings on the wheel and I can't find them in Azev's catalogue. The other thought was Borbet, but no joy there and OZ (there were similar wheels made by OZ for Lotus a few years ago) don't seem to show anything like them. This is a close-up: <> ...

At 15", they have a kind of "Mustang" look to them, especially with big 195/65 ratio tyres straight off a 9000. I'll be running 205/55 or perhaps 225/(50?) when they're ready for some track tyres.
