O.Z. Ultraleggera Installed

I needed to get winter tires so I figured I would use my stock 18 for winters and get some nice summer tires and rims. I found a good deal on these brand new and I figured I would try them out. Be gentle but let me know what you think and yes I know 18's are the best for track and 19's are the best compromise for looks and performance. I will spend 99% of my time driving like a normal human being on public streets. I also did not want to affect acceleration and these tires and wheels are within 1lbs of the stockers per corner.

Specs:

O.Z. Ultraleggera HLT
Yokohama Advan Sport
20x8.5 29ET (34ET rim 5mm spacer)
245/30-20
20x10 22ET
275/30-20

Thank you for all the compliments, to be honest I was pretty worried about these as I did not want to bling the car out to much. I think they have a nice form/function approach about them. In other words they still look good and performance is not hurt.

Those look phenomenal! Curious why you went with 20s over 19s, was it the deal you got? If you wouldn't mind, pm me where you got them and price. In the same situation for using 18s for winters and will be looking for a good set of summers. Thanks in advance.

Look great man! I think he went with 20's because they don't make the UltraLeggera in a 19" but I could be wrong.

I went with 20's because I wanted a little more exotic look but I also did not want some rims that were super heavy. The front are approximately a pound heavier and I believe the rears are actually a tad lighter. I had the stock 18's to begin with. I also wanted a rim package that was still clean looking and not to blingy.

I will weight them in the next few days and post pics and actual weights. I can tell you though that they seem lighter in back as they seem to spin up easier. I cant imagine the yoko being bad and they are actually bigger tires. Although I am sure the PS2's are great tires to begin with.

Also consider the Yoko Advan tires are very light.

I considered black but I thought it might be to much. I am happy with my decision.

I weighed the front wheel/tire with tpm and wheel weights and it weighed 49.7lbs. I compared that to the tire racks weights for the tire and rim and they stated 49lbs. I did not have a chance to weigh the rear but tire rack shows it would weigh 53.5 so I am going to say with tpm and wheel weights it should be 54.2. I will weigh a stock front and rear tomorrow.

I have the same rims on my car in black. I think these rims are the best rims for the price. Also their weight is really low considering they are not forged but they are as strong and light as a forged wheel.
