This probably is going to get transferred to the wheel and tire section but I wanted to get some more reading time here first (sorry mods!)<p>Here's my take on how OZ should've done the Ultraleggeras:<p>Before:<br><IMG SRC="http://img106.imageshack.us/img106/3114/ozultraleggeras10001ft.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>After:<br> <IMG SRC="http://img266.imageshack.us/img266/4950/ozultrav25dt.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Hmm... Maybe it's possible to rework the current design?<p>What do you all think? Yay or Nay? <BR><BR>

Re: OZ Ultraleggeras (mike_c70)

May be helpful to post a picture of the current design as many of us would not be able to pick out the differences.

That would look hot! The smooth outer rim looks really good... here is a pic of how they really are, don't mind the damage <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p> <IMG SRC="http://www.anonforums.com/builds/volvo/tme/damagedwheel.jpg" BORDER="0">

Re: OZ Ultraleggeras (JRL)

The spokes do not go all the way out to the outer lip.

Re: OZ Ultraleggeras (JRL)

Before pic added to first post. The spokes don't go all the way to the outer edge. Makes the wheel look cleaner IMO.

Re: OZ Ultraleggeras (mike_c70)

I think the first version would hide the dings a little better. Either one of them will receive damage. I would just rather have the spokes hide the dings than be visible in a clear smooth area.<p>The second version does look the best if you’re not worried about the dings.<br>

Easy. Chuck it on a big lathe and make a few quick face cuts!<p>
