New OZ Superforgiata

Just saw these new wheels in a TireRack mailer--19", forged, very lightweight, reputable manufacturer. They come in width and offset for the M3. Anyone tried them yet? I'd like to see a picture of them on a real car. I just wish the fronts came in 9" width instead of 8.5"...

Those look great! Do you think one could run a square setup with the rears?

Yes I have OZ Allegerita 18" on my car and they are superb!! Standard 19" M3 rims weigh 14,2kg and the OZ s weigh 7,8kg. Overall the car responds better, braking, directional change, accelaration and feel. Definately worth it.

I was wondering that, too, but I think the +23 offset on a 10" wheel would be too much for the front and cause rubbing.

Hmmm could you get away with running a 30 profile tire?

I've yet to see these on an M3. Great looking wheel. I've been thinking of picking these up for my cayman but that price....... Here's a photo on a GT3. Love the finish too.

Beautiful GT3. I so need one of those. Only thing stopping me is our house payments, kids' tuition, saving for retirement, buying groceries...

14.2 kg = 31.3 lbs...I don't think so
