Default Minimalist Alloy Wheels

Hi,

I'm looking for some minimalistic designs of alloy wheels (something like the OHC vtec wheels or similar), without curvy spokes etc. What I want is something flat, almost like a disc but perhaps with a few grooves/slots cut into it.

Any ideas? Links and pics are welcome.

For a silver Swift. !6 inches.

Problem with the Swift is that if you use big wheels with large gaps between the spokes you can see through to the other side of the car. Thats why I want something with more surface area.

theEnd,
i think you should consider this "openness" of Swift's wheels as a boon!
coz with such open area, discs will get cooler pretty quickly and will fade out any fade chances of brake fading!!
cheers!

i'd suggest u to go for bigger rims with lower profile tyres.

Hi Guys,

I would like to know if TSW range of rims are available in our country and also if they are then how much do they cost?

I particularly like the Rocket 4 model

Yeah i liked those a lot. In fact sent Arush a PM but he must be really busy cuz no reply as yet. Anybody know what wheels those are?

Also, with regards to the gap, its more evident at the rear end of the car where there are drum brakes. I doubt those need extensive cooling (its not like i'm gonna be braking that hard on a consistent basis), and I've always felt that drum brakes are damn ugly so i'd prefer to hide them behind the wheel rather than having them show.
