Has anyone tried these, apparently they can do in Knock off to suit the elan but keen to hear if anyone has tried them.

Any feedback much appreciated but look good and priced well.

I've considered these just because with 15 inch it opens up a whole lot of tire choices.

I pulled this pdf (wheel-weight-weight.pdf) off the internet in 2008 and someone has compiled a fairly extensive list of wheel weights. I don't remember where it came from but its a good list to check if you are weight conscious about your Elan or plus2.

If people continue to use 13" rims then maybe tyre manufactures will still continue to make them. Apart from the potential A frame clearance problems, why go for larger rims? Even Spyder's 14" offerings don't look quite right to me, even on a + 2.

(Whoops, from a totally non standard wheel man! but still 13")
