Superleggera Alloys

Hi everyone,just picked up 4 alloys for my scooby in gold,3 of them are like new but 1 is damaged,they are 17 ' Oz superleggera (12 spoke)although they are a few years old now was wondering if anyone had 1 lying around in there garage or any info as to the best place to possibly buy one. Phoned Oz and none of there distributors have have any just wondered if anyone on here might have any ideas.

The guy told me his mrs hit the kerb,when she took a chunk out of the wheel , dont s'pose she'll be driving his car again .lol

Re: Superleggera Alloys

Surprising enough i spent 2 weeks searching ebay ,and you could find a few 18" rims ,there were no 17's for sale.Must have phoned over 50 wheel & tyre specialist and no one had any stock at all. There were a few in the USA but most were damaged.
Was getting ready to off load them myself,but when you buy them dirt cheap makes you want to persevere and it all came good in the end.

I have got brand new 225 - 45 - 17 dunlop s on the rims ,which i am hoping after all this dont rub on the bodywork ,as the standard fit is 215 - 45 - 17
