Yes, the 7.5x16" alloy wheels. Disadvantage over the Atiks is price, supposedly a stronger wheel.

Where did you guys buy your Hutchinsons from?

I'm assuming the "street" 1207 models are much lighter than the older military versions. Does Hutchinson sell the 6 spoke beadlock versions for Gs with more aggressive offsets?

Tony has a set of 16" Ashtaroths now. I think he is putting them on his new Swiss 230GE

Eric, I could be wrong, but I believe there is only one offset offered (63mm?). The Military versions are actually lighter because they are forged. Civilian versions are not, and are therefore built heavier to handle similar loading.

Yes, one size offset (63mm).

The military Hutchinsons are forged and lighter than the civilian version.

The Ashtaroth wheels are cast, not forged, and the military/armored version is stronger as well. It is slightly heavier 12.9 vs 13.8 kg as shown earlier. I have both versions of the 16" Ashtaroth wheel, so this is first hand info.

The 18" Ashtaroth comes in 2 versions as well. The ET of 43mm and ET 63mm. I assume the 63mm offset version is lighter as the 20mm difference in offset is achieved by the increased thickness of the solid aluminum backing
