Beautiful wheels Eisen!

What about the tyres?
are they the same size of the stock?

it seems they are little bit different from the stock ones.
I read Avon Cobra Chrome.
which is the difference?

thanks

Going to fit them tomorrow, but just for info the rear wheel and tyre as delivered weighs in at 14.7kg or 32.4lbs.
And the front is 11.4kg or 25.1lbs.

Iíll weigh the stock wheels like for like when I remove them

Same size tyres as stock, but the wheels are wider

The new rims are Enochís. And I agree they are beauties !!! I like the daggers around the center, too. The attention to detail is amazing.

I am however using the Avon Chromes. They are the evolution of the OEM standard Cobra tires. They feel good, but usually new tires do. So the real test will be once they have some mileage on them and how much grip they give towards the middle/end of their life.
So far, Iím liking them but have done less than 500km with them - so early days.

Nice!! Doesn’t help that Adrian is down the street from me. I’m trying to hold out until I need new tyres.
