    Don't expect them to be light, Speedline UK on Facebook described this style wheel as a "heavy design" more about durability than light weight. As an aluminum wheel vs the WRC mags you can be sure they won't be in the same weight bracket as the old WRC wheels.

    exactly its designed to be strong and durable under tarmac rally conditions (not a light weight circuit wheel) and because of the flat face style, etc. is never going to win any prizes on weight....back in the grpA days the Mag version was around 9kgs

    these will be around 11.5kgs

    I recently purchased the road going 5 spoke recently released by Speedline.
    This is the earlier GpA tarmac wheel used on the Legacy and Impreza for 93 and part of 94 season.My wheels are 17x7 to avoid altering the arches but they also do 17x8 B376CE5F-90A0-4116-AD07-83C213C45955.jpeg

    I've got the 17x7 Tecnomagnesio 201B (very similar to the Speedline 2110 you've got, but mag vs aluminum) on my MY93 WRX. I was going for an non-blue/gold version of the car you shared. Pretty pleased with how it looks.

    Something I learned recently, the SL856 (the WRC wheel that is the original version of the one we're discussing in this thread) was actually made by Tecnomagnesio for Speedline.

    I have a restored set of these in 17" waiting to go on a car. It seems that the new release is just 18" is that true?

    Mine are 6 spoke 17x7. I figured these were safe for quick, zero modification installation.
