so i have procrastinated far too long on shopping for my summer tires new home and now i may be stuck. i really have my heart set on getting 9 inch wide wheels in case i ever decide to get 265 wide tires in the future, and 9 wide is just skinny enough to still fit the stock 235s without looking absolutely hideous.

i want oz wheels, i like the name oz, and i have met some influential people who trust them. i want light weight wheels, ive heard that unsprung mass has a very big effect on performance. being that im sticking with 17" wheels and 45 tall sidewalls i feel comfortable that will be enough cushion for them. i absolutely must have gold wheels, i like matte bronze too but i bought this car to put gold wheels on it and i will fulfill my destiny.

so to the point then. i specifically want O.Z. ALLEGGERITA HLT wheels. they are the lightest, if this is stupid beyond my comprehension please let me know. i went to oz's website and the only dealers that pop up are 5500+Km away from me... so then, does anyone know of any local wheels shops that sell oz? or is their website accurate and im going to be buying a plane ticket?

OZ is reputable.

If you want the lightest wheel for a comparable price, nothing beats the Enkei RPF1.

Good choice, I have those exact wheels in gold. I bought them from TireRack.

My OZs are lighter than Enkei RPF1s (15.8lbs vs 16lbs) ;)

yea tire rack is not gonna work, they dont have it. and whoever has been emailing me about this subject told me they cannot order it for me.

edit tbh they dont really have anything from any brand in the dimensions i want... are there still wheel shops or did tire rack decimate them all?
