PostSubject: New wheels, but which????   Thu 5 Mar - 20:33

Hey everybody, just joined the forum today so thought i'd strike up some convo. I'm looking for some wheels to replace my 19'' OZ Superleggeras [if anybodys interested] I'm wanting to have two sets as I am going to be using my car to promote my powder coating business.

I've narrowed it down... kind of, here we go (all 18s in white or black):

A) BOLA B10s


B) Compomotives


C) Speedlines


D) XXR 527s


E) Grids


F) My current 19'' OZ Superleggeras

Compomotives or speedlines for me. The others are too common, and I wouldn't even be considering the Bola's

Superleggeras. As mentioned above, Rotas are too common.

i always found black harder to keep clean than white! I think its because black needs to be polished to appear clean but if you rinse the dirt of white it instantly looks immaculate, sounds wierd but i always noticed it when cleaning my white and black cars

I do love those in dark bronze! I think one set is deffinately going to be the XXRs or the Rotas and I would like the others to be a set of compos but i am struggling to find any for sale :/

here are my current superleggeras from the side, they are 19s but i don't actually think they look too big but would like smaller wheels so the car sits abit lower

White is definitely much harder to keep clean. They look great for 5 mins after they've been cleaned, but the 1st time you even consider driving anywhere. they are suddenly dirty. I still love mine though Wink

What about the ultraleggera's I think these were the replacement for the superleggera's. Heres them in 17's on mine really suit the subarus well.



Personally I would go for a smaller wheel than 19's. Going from 19's to 17's made a massive improvement for me, much more comfortable and the handling and grip is massively improved.

XXR's for me even if they are common! They are common for a reason = they are probs the best looking wheel out there imo

I'm at Thornton Dale, you'll know it if you watch rallying as that all goes off in dalby up the road. Just on with merging my current Graphics business into my powder coating one which (should) be up and running properly in a month or two although - if you sent me a message when you're wanting them doing i'll hopefully be running it properly but im sure i could sort them out for you anyway
