    Default New Wheels...

    Thought you all might like to see the new wheels...

    The car feels lighter, seems to turn in quicker and brake faster.

    I've always liked that particular model of rim. Half my Gran Turismo garage has them on ; )

    Wouldnt mind a set for my GTi - though I really like cyclones. Nice choice.

    Hmm... had you have said your "Ziyi Zhang looking friend, or your Scarlett Johannson" I would have gone for it. But otherwise no..

    I don't know how much they weigh, but they feel lighter than the 17"s well my arms and back say that

    I purchased them through the Melb distributor of OZ wheels (Mag Wheels) who reside in Richmond.

    They weren't cheap, but I love them and it is Valentines Day.

    mmmm yeh

    Don't know really... To me it made it look abit like a 138

    Just my impression. I reckon the look great in white, however superturismo 17' in white would have looked better imho.

    Cheers dude. Looks rally stylez.

    I assume you are trying to make the car lighter, if this assumption is correct, then i guess you have accomplished it. If i was to purchase light weight wheels not based on looks, I would of probably opted for ENKEI RPF1 super lightweight wheels, which I believe are lighter then the OZ racers.

    Size 205/45/R16.
    Have you affected your ride height and rolling diameter? Id be interested in a dyno result now that you have lighter wheels and altered your induction.

    From a looks point of view, its not really my cup of tea, as mentioned above it looks 138ish. I guess im a fan of the 180 stock exterior looks. On a black 180 chroming the stock 180 rims looks good, even though i think chroming is lebofied venture, the black 180 chromed and lowered looks damn HOT.
