Default OZ SuperTurismo Evolutions

Anyone know if anyone in Vancouver has these rather elusive rims?



I know the new OZ SuperTurismo GT and WRC models look similar but have 16 spokes instead of the 15 on the Evolutions and don't have the correct offset for Subarus.

Good luck with these wheels, I've tried tracking these down for the longest time. Rallispec is your best bet to get these in North America. They are apparently a discontinued wheel and are even difficult to find in Europe. I know Rallispec had a set that they just sold last week after they advertised it in the vendors forum.
They do have some replicas of the evolution. They were asking $325 US a wheel for the real ones. The offset on these wheels are 48 and are 17 x 7 .

Volco tires got them listed on their site or affiliate site but they don't come in the right offset in either the 17" or 18"

The ones Volco carry are the SuperTurismo GT or SuperTurismo WRC which both do not have the right offset for subarus. The ST EVO's are the ones specifically designed only for Subaru cars because it was the same style wheels that were used on the 99-00 rally car.

So no one has seen these wheels on any Subaru in Vancouver?

Nope and I can't seem to find even in state side. I would like a set of those in 18" as I'm searching for wheels for my wagon. OZ doesn't even list it on their US site.

I don't think ST Evo stocked at TireRack makes a size that fits subaru.

Those are Superturismo GT's. 16 spokes instead of 15 and the spokes are different. The ST Evolutions were only made for Subaru vehicles and no one carries them in North America anymore.

I think to summerize this discussion is that it is pointless to search for a set of ST Evolutions since it is discontinued by the manufacturer and no one in North America seems to have inventory of it anymore. But it is still a very nice wheel.

My bad. I stand corrected. I thought the newest superturismos brought out by OZ were the evolutions. GT's are the newest ones w/ the spokes going right out to the outer lip.

Thanx for the correction Vege.

If you have any connections in HK or Japan. They might be able to track a set there. Maybe try wreckers or used car parts shops. I tried to get someone from HK to get me a set at one point but was told could be a 2-4 month wait and that wasn't a guarantee I'd get a set. I think in the end you'll be paying alot more than you'd want to with the shipping included. Or another suggestion is to maybe get a hold of some of the shops from the states if they get a set in to contact you.
There's a couple shops that bring in alot of jdm subaru engines and other jdm pieces. (Gruppe-S, Kingpin, Langston Subaru, Z1 performance might be able to) Try some of those shops.

If you ever travel to japan there's always those shops that builds Subarus that imitates rally cars, I forgot where I've seen the info but I know they have all sorts of Rally style rims

Something like

Oh, for the above sign check out "Used" to see some awesome used parts like 22B bumper, S202 Steering wheel, etc

Also drool over this!

This is a guy in Japan that built his own WRC Replica

Click on "Parts Impression" or "Events" to see some really cool pictures of the guy's car or their meets

You'll probably bump into me sometime or later. I don't have them on yet right now. Waiting for the rest of my goodies to arrive.
