Default 18" OZ Ultraleggera Wheels

This is a GREAT set of rims! I had this set of OZ Ultraleggeras on my Mini for about 7 months. They have approximately 15,000 miles on them so there's still quite a few more miles left in the tires! Ultraleggeras are one of the most attractive/popular rim choices, especially for Minis!

These rims have a set of Yokohama S-drive tires - 205/40 R 18 (non-run flats). The tires do NOT have the TPMS sensors in them. They are 18"x7" with a 42mm off set, 5.67 backspacing and a 4x100 bolt pattern. There was absolutely NO rubbing at all on my Mini when I ran these wheels.

This set is in very good condition with only two small blemishes. There is a small section of curb rash on one of the rims. The rash is about 4 inches long and not really deep. The other blemish is on a different rim and I don't know how to describe it other than it looks like a small indentation. Not sure how it happened but it is not very noticeable at all. I took detailed photos of both of these blemishes so make sure you check the pictures.

These rims BRAND NEW from Tire Rack are $335 each, NOT including Tires ($1,340 for a set of 4 plus the cost of tires)! I originally spent about $1,800 for the entire set. I am asking for $800 for the set which is less than half of what I originally paid.

I would of course prefer to sell these to someone within driving distance for convenience but can find out how much it'll cost to ship them if we need to. I would only charge exact shipping costs, probably through UPS Ground.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

Thanks,
Celia

She did the Joey mod, basically painting the housing - very nicely done.

How've you been Celia? Haven't seen you around in a while.

Nah, it's pretty simple actually. People just get all nervous about heating the housing to get the adhesive soft and prying the housing apart. Unless you're all thumbs, it's a walk in the park.
