    Hey, just a quick one just wondering what wheels you guys have.
    Defiantly need some new ones rather than the standard ones

    Thank you guys! :)

    Yes, they are the Ronal SEAT OEM 19" wheels fitted as standard on the new Cupra R model. I thought they would update my MY08 Cupra nicely.

    They are a variant of the Ronal R46 design.

    I was thinking of going for the 18" BBS Monza wheels from the Golf Gti but after a few of you advised against it (wouldn't look right, would it ?:( ) I had an attack of common sense and went for these.

    Am really pleased with the look of the car now, it shows of the brake calipers better and makes it easier to clean them / the inside of the wheels...& it looks a tad more exotic, I think
    :lol:

    Here is a side shot...

    This looks hot mate.
    Good choice since everyone is doing the BBS look nowadays, even here in SA.

    I had BBS CH on my car! Thought about going for lm's but steering towards performance wheels now.

    Never seen lm's on a k1 though, think it would be cool.

    Wheels are nice mate! expensive, but do look good!

    In desperate need of some advice.

    Hey guys i'm a newbie to this so please dont mind me asking, but im looking for some advice on which alloy wheels I should put on my seat leon, Its my first car so not anything upto the standards of your cupras etc.. but i hope for one of them for my next car. Anyway currently have an chronos yellow, 07 1.6 seat leon reference not the best but its nice, I was thinking perhaps black alloys.
    Searched ebay for replicas etc. but i'm not exactly sure what to look for or which would suit my car the best. Any reply would be greatly appreciated. :)

    I really love r46 look.. it is light and clear and not "overweight" with spokes!
    Do you know what is the weight of these wheels? I'd love to by 18s and thinking about ride quality same time...:) they should not be heavy but anyway:blink:
    Thanks
