    What is Sportec, is it like a special edition model on the S range? I remember seeing it in a S4 Sportec vs Impreza STi race but didn't have a clue what it was...

    They are mega £££ but gorgeous.

    If you want some that look similar but for less cash money. Check out the Bellini Bellas (South West Tyres) or the Kei Racing Force 10 (Topgear)

    Both look similar and are much cheaper

    They do look good! cant you also get them in graphite gray? although 19" do decrease the handling, is it really that much worse? i would just love to put a set of 19"s on it!

    I think you might be able to get them from Ed at APS, I bought mine from AmD but that option is no longer.....

    I find they stone chip quite easily in comparison with the BBS CH's I fitted to the wifes Golf.....

    I have spoken to Ed but apparently Sportec have stopped doing them and unless they have 2000 wanted they wont make any, there are only about 7 company's after them so at the moment they wont make any!!
    If i get the replica's, you can upgrade to Toyo PXT1-S has anyone tried these or would i be better just getting the tyres and putting some eagle F1's on them?

    Which replicas are you thinking of

    For reference, the Bellina Bellas with Toyo Proxies are 845 from South West Wheels & Tyres or 500 for the rims without tyres.

    Kei racing ones from topgear are 1015

    On a side note I have had Toyos on my previous 2 cars. Fiat Coupe 20VT and a Mr2 Turbo. I am a big fan of them. They do wear down bit quicker than F1's but are a lot cheaper

    Was looking at the cheeper ones alothough i dont like the fact they have so many holes in ie for the studs! would really like to get the real sportec ones just with 5 holes!
    What does everyone think about 19"s on it?

    I think you should stick with 18"'s but then again like everyone has said, seems hard to find =/

    19's for show, 18's for go!

    You won't get them 'cheap' although you might get lucky on ebay (have you tried the german ebay?). AMD used to sell them, so I'd imagine that Big Boys Toys do now.

    I think you will find that replica Sportecs will be heavy, where as the genuine items are probably forged and lightweight.

    Did you get in touch with Ed at APS? I'm sure he would be able to get them for you at a decent price.
