MAK XLR wheels on rosso 147

what do you think about MAK wheels XLR...on rosso 147 with full GTA pack.

here is one pic of my car....not very good one...but at least.

http://media.snimka.bg/1051/008357248-big.jpg

Here are the wheels:

They are also avaible in red collor....red alfa with red wheels...what do you think...


the thing is that I am looking at light wheels...the other ones I looked at were OZ ultralegeras.

Re: MAK XLR wheels on rosso 147

Have you ever seen a 5 door GTA before ?

Anyway, back to the topic, I have no idea how they will look on the car, honestly. I looked for the model on MAK's site, no mention of it, might have been helpful.

Re: MAK XLR wheels on rosso 147

Ultraleggera's you might aswell get the real wheels instead of the copies. And the OZ's are seriously light too.

Re: MAK XLR wheels on rosso 147

In fact the MAK wheels are a bit more expensive then the ultralegeras...5 euro or so..

I spoke with a few people who have tire/repair shops and their opinion is that Mak XLR are better then OZ ultraleggeras...

they also come in 5x98.

Re: MAK XLR wheels on rosso 147

I'd be very interested to know the weight of the wheels if you are able to find out.

Re: MAK XLR wheels on rosso 147

Tough choice, the ice black MAK's are gorgeous but so are the matt black and matt graphite silver OZ's. Can you photoshop them under your car for a comparison?

Re: MAK XLR wheels on rosso 147

Unfortunately, the Matt Graphite Silver Oz Ultraleggera is only available for the 147/156 in the 7.5x17" variation, I searched everywhere for a bigger version, could not find it and in the end I asked OZ, they confirmed it is not produced

KGB, if you are told the MAK are better and you like them just as much as the OZ, go for those. I personally am in favor of the OZ in Matt Black, with a red or car color stripe, but I've heard the Ultraleggeras are very soft, they bend easily, so I am not sure if I should get them afterall, especially since I want them in 8x19" variation.

Re: MAK XLR wheels on rosso 147

I was also told that ultraleggeras are very soft...which for the roads over here is a big minus.

I am thinking or ordering whatever wheels in the end of January....for now it seems that MAK XLR ice black are in the the top spot.

Re: MAK XLR wheels on rosso 147

I know of quite a few people here in Australia who have cracked, buckled and bent OZ Racing wheels. They do indeed seem to be very soft.
