hmm...
What rims are those on the WRC accent in the top corner of this site? Everything on Hyundai's page says they use OZ wheels, but I can't find any OZ models that look anything like them.
The closet thing I've found are the "Rated-R" ones on Konig's site but they're 6-spoke instead of 5...
Anyone who knows ? ^_^

Not necessarily, the superleggeras are only 8 kg's in 17's. Look like the volcanos. All there motorsports wheels should be light, though. U could e-mail the team and ask, though!

yeah, i got that bit about the specs of their wheels on the HyundaiWRC site
.. but the rims shown on this particular AccentWRC don't exist on the OZ site (either of them .. ozwheels.com or ozracing.com)!

also, they're only shown on the Accent from the very beginning of the 2001 season (Monte Carlo Rally).. any pics of the car on tarmac after then have what looks like the OZ Superturismo wheels.

observe...
RALLYE MONTE CARLO:

RALLYE CATALUNYA COSTA BRAVA:

Could it even be the EVO1 at Monte Carlo? (body decals are different and all that).

if oz did sell those rims the normal person's budget would not be able to buy them, the superleggera's are very nice though, but the 18's good luck finding those. it would be like finding gt1 race wheels not happening.

its my girl's car
