AZA Z15's - Hyper Light or Hyper Dark

Decisions...Decisions...

OK, I think I've finally decided to go with the ASA Z15's. Thanks to all the wonderful people in this forum that gave me their input and advice. However, I still have one final decision to make - Hyper Light or Hyper Dark finish? I've posted pics of both for comparison.

Also, just to let you know, I have a Jet Black 330i, so it has the chrome trim around the windows, doors, grille, etc.

Which finish to you prefer?

I like the dark and thinking about getting them for my SG. However, if you scratch it anyway, you can just repaint it with Wurth Silver paint.

The guy at wheelmax told me they weigh 25lbs, same as the Velocity Motoring ones. They're probably made in the same plant in Taiwan.

I wish I could see these in person. I too am sold on these. Does anyone have pics of the dark on a silver e90?

Diesel, your car looks awesome. That's a great photo in your sig.

I looked agin on Wheelmax and noticed something odd...the Dark 's offest is different. It's +45 instead of +40 in the HyperLight. Might want to check into this.

It would be helpful to see them with the car. Intuitively though, it seems like the hyperlight would go better with TiAg, whereas the hyperdark would go better with SG.

Go with the light...

Go with the light.. On a Black or dark grey car go with the light color. It will stand out more. I do like the dark color only in a 3 wheel that has a lip on it.. Meaning a 3 pc wheel. Otherwise your wheels will just look like they have brake dust on them the whole time.. Go with the light...

YES. . .the two colors have two different offsets. Why AZA doesn't offer both offsets in both colors is a mystery, even to Wheelmax!

Just bought mine from Wheelmax!!! Great deal!!

I just bought mine from Leo at Wheelmax. He only has one in the hyper light left in the 19 inch and two in the hyper dark. They are having a sale right now on these wheels. I bought mine for $1511 shipped with Hancook tires... 235/35/19 in the front and 265/30/19's in the back. Insane deal for these rims... Call wheel max if you want them and ask for Joe.. Ext 1028.. Tell him Tom from Seattle sent you... He said he might be able to order more as well depending on the demand.

Good luck.. Just trying to pass the savings on..

Tom
