Stiles,

Vivid racing used to offer these wheels (I don't know if they still do), but they were quite expensive -- about $1300 if memory serves me right. When I was looking for a set I managed to find a few people selling them on www.scoobynet.co.uk for much less. Of course, shipping from the UK is not cheap, but I bet you could find a set for less than Vivid's price.

Another option is to put a "Wanted" ad up and check this board's "Private For Sale" section -- the UK wheels appear for sale every once in a while.

I don't know the weight of the UK OEM wheels, but my 5-spoke Subaru 17" champage-colored wheels weigh about 18/19 pounds with an identical size/offset and a similar spoke design to the UK's.

Good luck on your search.

Whoops -- forgot to answer one of your questions:

The UK OEM wheels are available in silver.
