Haha yes that is a thorough answer. I was just wondering if the whole thing was a wheel or if it was like you said, a stainless steel cover over an existing wheel. It looks cool, I like it.

RPF1 + RE-71R 215/45R17. I quite like these, they look closer to 16" with the wide lip and straight sidewall.

Bought my 06 JCW back in April and the former owner maintained/modified it nicely --- my tastes are much parallel to his and it was nice to have some good stuff already done.

It came with 16x7 Konig Feathers and I like them very much, but I've always liked the retro vibe of the Rota RB's so I will likely go with a set of those when new tire time comes which is very soon.

Only disadvantage to the RB's is several additional pounds per corner compared to the Konig.

Konig Feather = 13.9 lbs
Rota RB = 16.5 lbs

I finally had a chance to mount the new wheels & tires over the weekend: Enkei TS-10s with Firestone Firehawk Indy 500s. Wheels are 18"x8", tires are 215/40/18. The combo makes the tires appear a tad stretched, so I might opt for 225s next time.
