Will OZ supepleggera look good on a Black BMW?
 
I am thinking of picking a set of these up for my Sedan but not sure how they will look on my car. I kinda like the silver stock wheels but I found a good deal for a brand new set of these rims.

The problems:
- stock suspension, too much wheel well gap
- wheel to small
- offset is lame.

Superleggeras are out of production for 7 years. Here's a pic of 17" Superleggeras on my car:

They don't look as nice as the stock ZHP wheels, but I love the way they drive, 14 lbs less on each corner makes a big difference.

Why, does it have thin spokes?

I guess Italians think their spokes should be like their spaghetti. :dunno:

Seriously, I assume it is to lower the weight even more than the Superleggara.

Excellent! Sure to generate friendly challenges on the street.

When you get 'em on, post pics, 'cause the old and wise saying applies.

Multiple, slender spokes are more effective at distributing load than large, wide spokes because they're able to distribute the load more evenly than otherwise.

Wire wheels, the ultimate sport upgrade.

Exclusive, too.
