As the old adage goes, you can only have two of the three.

Enkei RPF1 is a really good wheel
16.5lbs for the 17x9.5" version (+18mm and +38mm offsets). About $225/wheel
The hub bore is 73mm, so needs a centering ring (I use plastic ones). Trying to find who I got them from.

Not my car, but an idea of what they look like on a S197

I use the enkeis and they bend like potato chips. Every tire change I toss one. Probably just my driving style :mrgreen:

I use the Enkies as well, I have only bent a couple over three years, but those were some pretty hits, one was big hole at the end of some curbing. The other was a wreck. So far nothing from just driving on track.

I have a 3,700 lb car, not that cheated up lightweight car you drive Mark :wink:

Also Sebring. And they get a hop on the inside edge. In my experience, most tire guys will ignore it or are too busy to chase you down so you can see it on the machine. You might check yours again since we swapped wheels at Nationals :lol:

Funny, forgot about that but man are they clean. They are not perfect by any means but good enough to not vibrate or shake.
