New O.Z. "centerlock" wheel announced

OZ racing is proud to announce the brand new Formula HLT for 2013. OZ's High Light Technology (HLT) process uses rollers to compress and elongate the material along the barrel of a low-pressure cast aluminum wheel to obtain the desired profile. This process, which is directly derived from O.Z.'s experience in F1, produces wheels that are extremely light and strong. The flow forming process and the HLT technologies combine to create mechanical characteristics similar to those of a forged wheel. This permits a dramatic reduction in wheel weight while enhancing structural rigidity vs. a standard cast wheel.

Sizes I'm seeing right now are;
17X7.5 5-108 ET40
17X8 5-108 ET45
and 18X8 5-108 ET45

More may be coming soon but reach out to me with any questions you may have.

Click here for an 18" example on a 2013 ST

We'll be getting our first orders in the next few weeks so we haven't taken our own specs yet. If I had to put a number on it right now I would say around 16-17lbs for the 17" and 18-19lbs for the 18".

Depending on the size - 17X7.5 start at $289, the 18X8 would be $368.

Haha - right, I mean when you're driving it will look like a centerlock wheel right??

The design is just meant to mimic a center lock wheel.

They also have the standard center cap available.
