I second the vote for the Compomotives. I've got them on my Celica and we haven't been able to destroy one yet. I've also never had a problem with pulling a tire off of the rim. I've gotten a couple rocks stuck in the bead, but that is about it.

Speedline/Raceline...

Lots of rally teams use them..

As strong as hell..and light weight.

And cheap (especially if u have a trade account with them)

Actually, if you are on a budget you can't beat the stock Legacy alloy wheels. They are strong for a stock wheel and dirt cheap. I would chose them over Revolution, for example, regardless of budget. Best bang for the buck. Other than that the Racelines are very strong and reasonably priced and the Compomotives are priced about the same with the Rally dicount from TTRS (SCCA contingency sponsor.)

Dave, TTRS does the Revos. www.usacomp.com for Compomotives.

Yes, Revolutions suck, in my experience. I posted broken wheel pics here before.

Oops, my bad.

Eric Eaton's got a Revolution wheel center that's about 8" in diameter. All that's left are the spokes. That's after driving only 3 miles on a flat, though apparently at very high speed.

The Panasports are really quite good. We put some on an MGB racer I helped restore and they seemed quite light. Kspeed will build them in whatever offset you need.

They look the business to boot.

These are the street wheels in the pics, the naked wheel at the top is the competition model.


I just noticed the Compomotive ML is quite similar, they may have even higher quality, I don't know.

Subie Gal,
I've seen black powder coated OZ rally wheels w/ YELLOW writing in Japan. Not sure if you can get them here though. Looked really cool.

While this post is alive.. I'm looking for some better rims for my snow tires (Tired of the steelies look). obviously I won't need them until next late fall. I remember hearing that somebody makes 15" wheels that actually fit over the subaru 4pot calipers. thoughts of those brakes make me drool, but buying 16" snow tires doesn't. What choices are there for 15" rims that WILL fit of the Subaru 4 pot front brake set-up?

Thanks - Jon

We have used Revolution Wheels and are very happy with the product! On the one occasion DC mentioned, I take complete blame
(3mi., 70mph, huge rocks and no tire) as Tony Chavez put it -
"Eric you gotta SLOOOW Down : )"
The wheels have put up with my misjudgement on many occasions and I'm sure will continue to on many more!!
Rally on !!! Eric http://www.fast-focus.com/ffrhome.htm

Wow, Eric, you must have gotten some good ones. The only problem is that you can't tell the good RFXs from the ones that will break under you when you least expect it. As I'm sure you know, it's not cheap to run a ProRally. I spent several thousand bucks last year to run Maine, and dnfed 1/2 mile from the start when 2 (count them, 2) Revolutions shattered circumferentially. Another one broke exactly the same way in the ClubRally on day 2.

Now I get to spend another coupla thousand on new wheels, hopefully properly heat treated to withstand rally conditions. Their former distributor dropped them for reasons I'm sure he would prefer I not attribute to him. I don't know TTRS, but I wonder if they'll stand behind the product when KN Wheels (who makes Revos) says, "F--- Off" like they did to me.

OK, I'm done venting. I just wanted to make sure everyone knew the whole picture.

re: jon in omaha

The answer to your question is the Speedline RL7 15". It clears the Subaru 4pot.
