    Default 15 inch Superlites: new design

    Apparently the 15 inch Superlite has a new design. Which is good, because I never really liked the look of the now old design. It just didn't have the real "Minilite" look. The 14s looked much better. The new design is more like the 14s and 16s. Old design was 10-spoke; the new design is 8-spoke, I believe. Anyone have any pics of it? It doesn't show up on the Performance website yet.

    I think I might sell my GTi wheels and get Superlites!

    I hope they get the offset right this time, I have had to attack all of my guards with a hammer to get clearance and that is just with 195 by 65 tyres!

    But weren't yours the wrong offset anyway? Problem was that the correct wheels made contact with the brake calipers. I just hope that design of the inside of the wheel allows clearance.

    Superlites look pretty good too! If I'm gonna do it, I'll post a poll first.

    I have no idea, they came with the car.
    I guess what we need is wheels of the correct offset that have been designed with the Peugeot calipers in mind.
