Thanks man.... Haha.... I've been riding around on these for almost 8 months or so, and I still have yet to give my buddy money for them.


Thanks RobE

My second set of OZ's discontinued Chrono's custom powdercoated. The first set was from the 'leggera line and had a crack at the base of the spokes and wheels that was unfixable. I'm done with this company at the moment .

Nope, this happened on the highway in Long Island, I slid into a guardrail around a turn around 40mph right when it first started to drizzle, there was a curb right before the rail and sent my car in the air and that was the result when I landed. That wasn't the wheel that hit the curb though, it was the wheel that I landed on. I'm wondering if the ARP extended studs had anything to do with the result of the wheel.

Also, the first set was damaged just from streets in NYC. While I drive hard occasionally, I only do it on smooth straightaways, the rest of the time around NY I putt putt my car around for fear of damaging the lip kit or wheels.

The manufacture date of the wheel stopped in 1996 I believe, I bought these practically brand new from a woman who owned a Baja. She only used them for summers. Had them powdercoated after a couple of months, babied them cuz it was for shows and that's about the life span of them.

I didn't say it was the wheels fault per say, I did question if having stronger studs made the difference as the wheel as a whole rolled down the highway while the spokes were still attached to the hub. But this is the second set of wheels from OZ that have been damaged and I know I'm not the only one to have the notorious OZ crack on the 'leggera series.

I would question the manner in which your wheels were powdercoated, if the company you used put the wheels in the oven to burn off the original paint before re powdercoating it will have affected the wheels, making them brittle. Wheels should be chemically stripped of paint not cremated in a furnace at 900 degrees.

I thought the process of powderocating was to sandblast or bead off the old paint? I'm not sure, might be mixing it up with something else. I'm not sure what their actual process of procedure was. Regardless, the damage is done.

I was sent here from my own thread, so here goes.

Gold 17" Superleggeras, stock WRX rubber, width unknown. Traded away a set of 18" Axis Reverbs for these, and it was WELL worth it. I'm looking for a 2-some or 3-some set of these (undamaged, 17", gold) to buy with another Subaru owner to replace a damaged wheel of his, and to give me a full size spare tire Sorry that the colors aren't as vibrant as I would like. More pictures to come this weekend after the CTSubie Dyno Meet
