    18" Super Leggera's

    Morning people and a happy new year to all

    I am hoping to put some 18's on my Coupé some time this month and was think about some OZ Super Leggera's. They are very light weight and would suit the car too. I know these only come in a ET38 offset but do you reckon the handling would be okay if I stuck to 215/35/18 tyres and only a 35mm drop?

    Thanks

    Patrick.

    yeah i should think it would be fine, should help the handling a lot even with a 35 mm drop, when i got my wheels and lowering it made a huge difference to the handling

    you will need to roll the rear arches patrick but that doesnt cost much and they are a beautifull wheel Handling will be fine.

    if the offset is ET 38 then you may well have too (it will be tight) If you stick to ET 42-49 on 18's you should be fine you may get a slight rub with a car full of people and lugage though.

    What about getting the inside of each wheel skimmed a couple of mm?

    Very nice choice of alloys, I tried to get these, but was told I would have had to wait 6 months as OZ had to make another mould for the alloys :roll: before finally going for the BK 604's in 18's

    If this means you will have a set of coupe turbo alloys for sale soon, can I be first in line.
