Hey everyone,

Im an SL owner, but was told to ask here about rims for my car (looking for Gen2 Pentas :rolleyes:).

Anyway, I have a dilema trying to find out if the front brake calipers are going to be a problem for new 16" rims. I understand that for Gen2 Pentas they won't but if I cant find any I'm considering alternatives.

Currently I have 15" x 7J alloys ("15 holes" I think they're called).

Here are some pics. Any help is greatly appreciated. :bowdown:

Your stock 107 wheels always look great, and personaly I think Penta's are one of the ugliest wheels ever, so if you can't source them, I think your lucky not to. But to be some what of value, what kind of wheel are you looking for if Pentas won't work? Is there a budget? Specific width? OEM? Flashy or non flashy?
