    An idea "borrowed" from Willis. Really as a thread about the various wheels and sizes that are found on the 197/200s as standard (OEM) or aftermarket ones people have fitted.

    So I'll start with the standard Renault wheels.

    Speedlines (Optional extra) (17x7.5)

    6620977173_3d9c43b28f_b.jpg

    The most popular choice of wheel for the Clio 200. Was available originally in satin black or white, though later on in the lifecycle of the Clio 200 white was dropped from the options list.

    Cup Racer Speedlines (17x8)

    8463430736_7e0f6b1f38_b.jpg

    Only available to buy from R-Sports (New) or second hand (Usually from race teams, eBay etc) in varying levels of condition. Popular with those looking for that slightly more aggressive stance (Gained from the extra wheel width) or Cup racer look.

    Raider (Optional extra)

    These were not a very popular optional extra wheel. Commonly mistaken for the standard 197 wheel. Its main "feature" is the polished metal face.

    200 Cup Wheels

    7035783823_a24dce440b_b.jpg

    The standard wheel if you bought either a 200 Cup or 200 FF with Cup chassis option. Its essentially an anthracite version of the 200 Sport wheel. A popular choice wheel. People are also known for having them painted in black a la Megane 250 wheels.

    200 Sport Wheels

    Not seen much on the 200. Most people chose the optional extra wheels.

    Megane R26.R Wheels (Standard on the 200 Raider Edition)

    8462401717_84930b7985_b.jpg

    8463500716_cff032aa18_b.jpg

    The standard wheel found on the Raider special edition Clio 200. Come in 18" gloss black.

    197 Cup Wheels

    8463466824_51314f3e50_b.jpg

    The standard wheel if you bought either a 197 Cup or 197 with Cup chassis option or R27. Its essentially an anthracite version of the 197 Sport wheel. Still a popular choice wheel to this day.

    197 Sport Wheel

    8463481896_914d2b00ec_o.jpg

    The first wheel type available for the Clio 197. The standard wheel when buying a 197 FF with no cup option. Often referred to as the "Raider" type wheel. This is however inaccurate and they are just standard 197 wheels.

    Aftermarket Wheels

    OZ Racing Ultraleggera (17x8, ET55)

    8463516466_2349cd2ca6_b.jpg

    8463516532_8da1112552_b.jpg

    The most popular aftermarket wheel choice for the MK3 RS'. Primarily down to looks, wider offset to more aggressive look and its lightweight properties. Available in a range of colours but the most popular choice is matte black.

    Sparco Assetto Garas (17x7.5 or 18x8, ET45)

    Colours available are mainly black or bronze, there is however a company offering coloured versions.
