We have a club discount with Revolution, their 4 spoke 'race' versions are very light without any compromise on strength - speak to Warren.

6.5" front and 8" rears for 185/205 tyres

Forget 15" unless you like the crop sprayer look  Rofl

Thanks for this, yes I did make an offer on these, but by the time I've had the slicks (no good for me) removed at £50 and them being used, I thought I'd look elsewhere.

The Revolution wheels look lovely (I have a set) but they are actually quite heavy - notably heavier than standard Caterham anthracites for example....  

MB wheels are unbeatable really, last forever, are easily refurbished, and hold their value.  IMO!

Agreed. Barnbys are the really light, configurable on width and always hold their value well.

The road 4 spokes  are, but the Race versions are much lighter - I have them on mine

I have the 4-spoke race Revolutions which are lighter than my old road Revolutions.

When I purchased mine last February I think Warren told me they no longer sell the road wheels. However from their website the road version 13x6 is 5.2-5.4kg and the equivalent race ones are 4.2kg. No idea on the weight of other wheels to compare though.

When I ordered mine they cost £571 (inc VAT & delivery), cheaper than 4 x ZZS tyres from Avon

Ah yes I probably have the old road versions - I bought them new about 8 years ago (very cheaply ISTR!). The lighter race versions would definitely be an improvement...
