Help me decide on wheels for my SportCombi

So I'm on the hunt for some new summer wheels for my SportCombi.



I'm leaning towards either Miro type 111's in 18"x8.5" in ET35.


OR

Rotiform SPF's in the same size/offset.


Thoughts/opinions welcomed.

Miro's are the new RK2, everyone is getting them. I am a little butthurt about it because they look like my wheels.

Neither?


Still the best looking wheel is the Opel knock offs popular on SC.

I've always loved the BBS CH. I'm sure you could find a less-expensive version if you're just cruising around and not trying to break records at Limerock.

Yeah I always hate to do something that's been done a million times before, but the truth is that style of wheel is a nice looking wheel so it makes sense everyone is running them. As much as I wan't to run something unique I just think those wheels will look better.

I like BBS CH as well, but I feel they are over priced for what they are.

The Astra wheels are nice. But I'm after a silver wheel in an aggressive offset, my rear qtrs are rolled and pulled so it looks a little goofy with more offset and I'm trying to avoid spacers.

I haven't seen all that many cars with the Rotiform SPF and like the look of them, but I just cant picture them on a Saab for some reason...

You can usually find BBS CH reps for reasonable prices.

How bout 19" TSW Kyalami..only reason I bring it up is because I was going to run a set on my 05" aero wagon. I ended up selling the car before I could put them on. I sold my wagon with rkII's.
