From sporty coupes to large SUVs; OZ, MSW and Sparco Wheels renew their catalogues with light, resistant and customized wheels, designed to improve performance.
New products and new innovative ideas in OZ’s 2018 catalogue, the most successful brand in world motorsport, along with its controlled brands MSW and Sparco Wheels. In line with the group’s philosophy, which focuses on certified quality, safety, style and the reputation earned through multiple championship victories in F1, Rally and other motor racing events, OZ winks at performance and design through its brand new catalogues.
Racing look for compact sports cars
Supercar dreams for the A Class Mercedes with the new OZ Veloce GT, especially for its high-performance versions. The Veloce GT, with nine spokes that reach the outer rim lip, is characterized by a side cut that streamlines the design inspired by some of the most distinguished supercars of yesterday and today. Available in Gloss Black with a diamond lip, the wheel comes in sizes 7.5x17" and 8x18", and belongs to the Sport family of OZs Racing line. The new Podio by Sparco Wheels is the result of a collaboration between OZ and the specialized Italian racing apparel and accessories manufacturer, so popular among drivers competing on and off the track, was also designed with compact sports cars in mind. Light and aggressive, this new release is a mesh design with slender, streamlined spokes that extend all the way out to the outer lip of the rim. The finish is Gloss Black and the available sizes are 17, 18 and 19", the latter making its first appearance on Sparco Wheels’ catalogues. Tüv approval has already been obtained, Nad approval is on the way.
Made for Alfa Romeo and BMW
Two new wheels, specifically designed for Alfa Romeo and BMW, with the distinctive family feeling these brands demand, are now found in MSW’s catalogue. The first is the 18” MSW 82 and boasts five curved spokes creating as many circles and comes with a Matt Gun Metal Full Polished finish and can accommodate the original Alfa hubcap. The MSW 82 has also received the Tüv approval and is now about to receive the Nad too. BMW, on the other hand, gets the new MSW 73, part of the Avantgarde family with a five-slender-spoke design that reaches the rim lip. A key feature of this new alloy wheel is that it is OE Cap Ready. In fact, with the MSW 73 it is possible to use the original hubcap for every BMW model, for both 5x120 and 5x112 applications. In addition to the various BMW models, the MSW 73 wheels can also be fitted to Ford Focus and Focus RS, Audi A3 and A4, and Skoda Superb. Once again, the wheel is Tüv approved and the Nad is underway. The available sizes are 17, 18 and 19".
Performance wheels for SUVs
The HyperXT HLT wheel, is the lightest single-piece wheel ever built by the company for the SUV category, and integrates many of the technical characteristics of the HyperGT HLT transferring them on medium and large SUVs such as the BMW X6, Mercedes-Benz GLE and GLC and Porsche Macan, where the maximum load is very important: here we’re looking at 950 kg per wheel. The high structural strength guarantees driving precision. The spokes have a Star Graphite finish and the same design of the GT but are strengthened and widen towards the outer lip, whose finish instead is diamond-coated fully resembling racing wheels. The new model is available in size 20 and 22" and Tüv approved, Nad approval will be obtained shortly; the original hub caps from all top car manufacturers can likewise be used. Still looking at the world of SUVs, MSW introduced its new MSW 49 dedicated to Range Rover, BMW and Volkswagen. Five double spokes radiate from the centre of the wheel and two finishes are available: Gloss Gun Metal Full Polished, perfect for the summer season when the light enhances its shape and volumes, and Matt Gun Metal semi-polished for the winter months. Available in sizes 18, 19 e 20” the wheel is OE Cap Ready and can use original Volkswagen, Audi and Range Rover hubcaps. The MSW 49 is TUV approved and, here too, Nad approval is expected soon.
