Me too (which is very rare for non-OEM): I like the curvaceousness of them - does the curve of the "spokes" mean that the curved part protrudes further out than the rim/tyre, or do they not curve out that much?

MJ, cast your mind back a bit. In this picture with the ruler, can you remember what size wheel/tyre combo was used?
