These OZs in black transformed the look of my Brilliant Black 2006 RX8 into an awesome looking stealth street machine. I became so tired of the silver stock rims and how every car on the street has silver rims.
I wanted to reduce wheel weight and buy something more stylish, the OZs are a hit! I had my local Mazda Dealership remount my low milage Kumhos, transfer the original TPMS sensors to the OZ's as well as install black hardware around the sensors to hide the silver TPMS shafts a little more. I also bought some bought some black lugnuts to complete the look.
I have not noticed a huge difference in the handling. I'm mainly a street driver, no track time. The 12 spokes take a little more time to clean but not an issue. I figure touchup would be easy with black model paint if needed but I am careful at the curb, the Mrs...not so much.
TireRack delivered in 2 days, impressive! This has been my 4th order with TireRack since 2008. I am a fan!
