    Default Why are OZ wheels so expensive!

    There is a corsa in works carpark with 17'' oz Super turismo GT multispokes on and they look ace. so i looked on internet and wtf, £1000 with no tyres for even 17''!!! so youll be looking at £1500 - £2000 for 18's and 19's, why they so expensive are they ultra light weight or something! i never see many coming up second hand either.

    They are (generally) a much stronger, lighter and better designed wheel than a lot of the alloys on the market. Many designs of OZ wheels are suitable for racing - whereas the usual heavy soft things you see in tyre places and Halfords are only really suitable for road use.

    The 17" OZ wheels from my Subaru Legacy GTB weighed less than the 15" TSW wheels I had on my Renault 5 GT Turbo. That told me how bad the TSWs were. So I ditched the TSWs and went back to the original 13" Speedline alloys, which massively improved the handling

    You get what you pay for I guess...

    Why are OZ wheels so expensive? Because they have to be shipped all the way from Australia.



    I'll get my coat.

    Your paying for quality - how many cracked snowflake threads are there?

    The brotherinlaw rolled a Ka in 1998 fitted with 6x15" OZ super tourings (the outrageously large then!!!!). No damage to them at all, balanced and tracked true, and two had shed tyres (though still on the rims if that makes sense).

    Exactly.
    Built up to a spec, not down to a price.

    Buy cheap - buy twice.
