Have been checking on some wheels and discovered Diamond Racing Wheels offer 4x140 bolt pattern on their Pro Series wheels. All their wheels are custom made so you can get most any offset or color. I received this from their customer support:

 

We can do a 4x140 in the Pro Series:
 
15x6
15x7
15x8
15x10
 
16x6
16x7
16x8
16x10
 
The price is $90 each. Not cheap, but compared to other custom made wheels not all that bad. Was going to order some, but decided with the stock engine with bigger wheels/tires would not be a good combination.

I don't know what specs they can create. I would guess it's wide open as the wheels are made to order. They were very responsive to my initial inquiry. A friend ordered some wheels from them a year or so ago for an old Volvo and he was pleased with what he got. I don't remember his specs but I'm guessing they were a goofy offset considering what he was trying to do. The only thing he mentioned was that they were a bit on the heavy side being steelies.

I don't see a 4x140 option listed. Am I missing something?

Hello, i called them and 4x140 mm is avaiable !

The only problem is, that 15x6 rims have maximum 3 inch backspace (0 offset) and the 15x7 rims have maximum 4 inch backspace (+12,7 mm offset).

 

If you plan to put the wheels on a  non lifted Loyale (L-series) with original 55mm offset rims they would be too mutch outside.

There is also this place here in Oregon, looks like the same scorpion wheels being sold in Aus. Not sure if they're still available but they look to be...

Has anyone got these? What do ya think about em?

Also, for a GL hatch, which ones would suit me best. Tires and wheels are not my strong points...

So, steel-only wheels with about 2-3 inches more offset than the factory wheels?.....

 

5-lug it is!

 

Also, $90 per wheel is DAMN CHEAP for brand new wheels.

Blech, that's a terrible offset. So many better options.

There are several options for 4x140 nowadays, just expensive.

I REALLY like the ssr formula mesh wheels, $551 shipped, I want a set so bad for my xt!
