A light weight wheel at a reasonable price. Even with wider, brand new 235/40-18 tires, this wheel saved > 4.5 lbs. per corner than the OEM wheel with worn 225/40-18 tires. The bright silver paint on this wheel is fairly plain compared to Enkei's Hyper Black (the finish of the GTC01 wheel on my old A3), Hyper Silver or Platinum Silver; otherwise, I would have given full marks for the aesthetic appearance.
I also considered the OZ Racing Ultraleggera, which looks better in some respects -- matte graphite silver paint, carbon fiber center cap, and longer spokes -- but is a whole 1 lb. heavier (at the same offset) and $23 more. At the end of the day, my nerd side won. "Tilt Cast w/ Flow Forming" is music to my ears.
