Dunno? I have a flat dished 3 spoke Springalex here, but that is a bit of a collectors Item and not current...

Is there a pic of this wheel anywhere, or look to Demon Tweeks website for it?

Those are Compomotive TH1's.

I don't think they are made anymore but there are many many rallycars run them so they may still be available in some form from somewhere. Awesome wheels though... There is a TH2 and TH3 available but it is not really as good and I don't think it is made in a suitable size

I dunno if they are that heavy, I think teh design favours strength and low weight over brake cooling but I am sure kenich can confirm this. I.e. please go weigh them as I have always wondered what they weigh.

I presume those alloys are teh ET35 FWD ford style then, 6J wide? Are those not the quite early TH1's though with teh outstanding lettering? Later ones just got stickers I think.

Indeed :D There aren't many alloys out there that I like as much as steels, but this one comes very close indeed! If I still had a rallye and was looking for an Alloy wheel or 4 (purely for fitting big brakes under of course) then these would be high up on the list.
