OZ Superleggera III

Why are they so expensive? Pretty wheels, but they don't seem very leggera at 24 and 26 lbs...

They actually looks best on Porsches (there's a great ad from OZ with them on a Cayman that they run in Porsche mags), but they're still pretty sweet on BMWs (but in the same vein as the standard 135 Euro wheels).

They are expensive because they are forged... The ultraleggereas are actually much lighter.

Knowing these wheels come standard on Ruf Automobiles they don't seem all that expensive. OZ delivers quality upto or above OEM spec.

Forged multipiece = $$$

I actually preferred the cleaner look of the regular Superleggeras, not to mention the lower price & weight. Too bad they are NLA.
