Compomotive or Panasports?

I like the look of the Compomotive rims better:


but I don't know much about them.

Here is the Panasports:



Cost is about the same, 200+ each


Offset selection seems much better with the Compomotive rims from what I can tell (Panasport sales not returning emails)

Never heard of Compomotive before. But, that doesn't mean much, I've led a sheltered life.

I had been looking at the Panasports myself. What are the Compomotives made of and how much do they weigh?

Pressure cast aluminum...they list the weight as 18 pounds which seems heavy for a 15x6 rim (compared to the factory 13 pounds for the forged 15x5.5 Fuch)



What I "really" like about the Compomotive rims is that they'll make a 15x8 rim which with the right modifcations to the inside trunk fender well, they should fit with 225/50's under the stock fenderwells (maybe just a tad rolling of the outside fenderwell, but not much)...I'm guessing here, but on paper it seems for fly

Compmotive are British made and have a good reputation. very big in racing, especially club and rally. Big selection of styles.

Mike, The minilite style looks good. What distributor or link are you using for info?

The Comps with the smaller hub section look MUCH better than the Panasports IMO. Those would nice on a 914.
