Lightbulb oz Superleggera 17"

Does anyone have OZ superleggera on their WRX? If you do please post a pic of your ride. I am thinking about buying a set of 17x7.5 and want to see it on a WRX before buy them.

PS: Where can you find the best price?

I bought them from Modacar for $239 apiece (I think) & their prices should be on their site.

Thumbs up Looks good!

Thanks for the pics, they look really good, are you running 215 45 or 40? And do they have 17x7.5?

Thanks man.

Default modacar?!?!?!?

didi you buy them from modacar as in modacar.com? modacar in pleasanton california? i live right by them, and they are not trustworthy, and overpriced on most parts of their shop. i have not purchased wheels from them but i know people that have had HORRIBLE engine work done there. import friends of mine have gotten kits installed very half-assed, and the people in this area tend to stear clear of them.
just my .02, but they arent a good plase to do buis w/.....

Default Superleggerra availability 17"

I contacted Modacar about a month ago, and the had the SLs in stock in 17x7, but they didn't know what the offset was or if they would fit a Subaru WRX or not.

A couple of other vendors since, have stated that North America won't likely receive them in +48 ET sizes until July.

Note that apparently there are SLs in +23 ET 17x7 or so, since they are available from tire rack for other cars e.g. VW Golf.

I like these wheels because they appear to be light and strong.

Hanzo,
They do look really nice. Good Choice. They would look even better on a Blue WRX (like mine) though...

I need to find a reference for wheel weights. Anybody have any recomendations?

Yup, Modacar from Pleasanton, CA... I had never heard of them before, but they had a slick website and the people on the phone were fairly polite (ok, maybe not, but I needed rims! ), and I got what I ordered a short while later!
