I've had these on a few other cars, they have some nice styles and the weight isn't bad. I had some Ultraleggera's on a Miata, and I was thinking about them for my Lotus.

Of course the Tire Rack doesn't really allow me to find them due to it's system.

Then again, maybe there is a reason these potentially cool wheels aren't in use by us?

The weights are comparable to the stellaCORSE wheels from Sector111...so they should perform well no?

p.s. is a RaC monolight REAR wheel seriously 13 lbs, that seems VERY light.

The ultraleggera and superturismo wheels come in the correct bolt pattern and offsets, the trick would be finding a dealer that sells them. I never have.

I love OZ's stuff, use them on my rally car.

I have the ultraleggera's on my mini and I like them a lot. Im running the Volk CE28's on my Lotus since they only weight in at 8 and 10 pounds.

At 9.1lbs front and 12.9lbs rear, the stock weight on these Volks is too heavy. So, like you, I have drilled lightening holes all around the rim.

XTN, you really shouldn't have infused them with Helium particles, I think that's when you crossed the line. I told you they'd be come too light, and levitate themselves out of your pickup bed.:crazyeyes Sorry I can't help myself.

I weighed mine and thats what I came up with.. Maybe the scale was off.. They are super light though.
