Thumbs up New oz wheel!

OZ racing is proud to announce the brand new Formula HLT for 2013. OZ's High Light Technology (HLT) process uses rollers to compress and elongate the material along the barrel of a low-pressure cast aluminum wheel to obtain the desired profile. This process, which is directly derived from O.Z.'s experience in F1, produces wheels that are extremely light and strong. The flow forming process and the HLT technologies combine to create mechanical characteristics similar to those of a forged wheel. This permits a dramatic reduction in wheel weight while enhancing structural rigidity vs. a standard cast wheel.

Exact fitments and pricing is upcoming, but we expect a wide range of 5-bolt sizes and applications similar to the very popular Ultraleggera and Alleggerita.

What a couple characters . It is a very nice looking wheel in person (pictures don't do them justice). I actually prefer it without the center lock look cap. There are some fitments that are going to be available in gold and they look awesome (not a huge fan of gold wheels other than on World Rally Blue Subarus) but this looks great.


Without cap:

if you have other colors now is the time to show them, can't picture anyone driving an RL with yellow wheels

They look better with the full cap in my opinion but I don't like the idea of fake center locks. It even says "Central Lock" on them.
