New OZ wheels

Several peeps asked for pics when I got it all together, so here they are!
These are OZ Alleggerita HLT - painted Anthracite and I had the Cayman side grilles I've had for a couple of years, painted to match and finally installed!
I got the 18" x 8.5" front and 10" rear from Tirerack with Sumitoma HTR ZIII tires in 235/40-18 and 265/40-18.
The wheel and tire packages were 5.5 lb. lighter on the front and 7.25 lb. lighter on the rear. I don't know how much is wheel or tire since they came mounted and balanced from Tirerack.
The balance job from Tirerack is the smoothest set of tires I have ever driven. Excellent job!
My original PS2's were old and rock hard, so the grip comparison to the new sticky Sumis is not fair, but the ride and noise comfort is enough better that wifey commented in less than five miles on the road, yesterday.

Very nice! As much as I like factory Porsche wheels, there is something cool about having a uncommon set of wheels.

Looks sharp!

Thanks for posting the pics, your car looks great! Looks like your roll bar matches the wheel/vent combo also.
