Looking for ideas for my 140. Mainly about choosing wheels. 16" or less.

No, you want Polaris or Eikers. Really. You do.

Also, if you follow the quote link in my sig, there's a 145S with some pretty nice wheels, some euro holes and a mirror that's a little too erect...

I think Ethan may have some pix of his old 145S with Hydras on it somewheres...

16" minilite reps are the way to go.....

These are probably 15's and definitely not a 140, but you get the idea. The perfect classic look.

IIRC oskars wheels are made by Ronal [R6 ????] they make them up to 16 or maybe 17"

there is someone on here with a smurf blue 142 with panasport wheels... can't remember his user name... super nice car:

The front grease caps are going to be in the way of alot of center caps/centercovers so choose carefully.

Winner. I need to get me some Propus!

Honestly, it'd be cool to see some 17 inch Porsche turbo twists on a 140, along with the lobster claw red brakes. If I had the cash, I would make that happen! someday...

I have the 145, and I have the wheels! I would have done this by now, but i've been spending all my money just keeping this thing on the road. I should do a test-fit though, just to see how they will look on there. LOL, I'll just put the car on jackstands with the wheels propped up in the wheel wells. coming soon...

Sorry about the car

17's look hawtt on a 140..
Smaller wheels also work though. I agree that panasports work very well with the right tires. I have a set of 14x6.5 (IIRC) that I'd let go for $350 +shipping :).
It all depends on the look you are going for. Old school or new school.

^ Kyle... those black ES wheels... I'd still love to widen them to 7".

Okay, here's The Red Barron, sporting 14 x 6 Enkeis (Mini-Lite knockoffs)
