OZ superforgiata has fit for the 650. Same sizes from 12c can be used. I don't know about European availability but they shold be readily available. I can help you get some if you like.

Sorry i just realized you said Europe.

these wheels are from BBS Japan (who now own BBS Germany) and are produced in Japan. not sure if they're exported to Europe or the US. i believe you can get FI-R's, which look almost identical, but are not as expensive (or as light) as they use a less exotic alloy, not the duralumin used on the flagship RI-D's.

As MP4Dream says, get the Superforgiatas if you want OZ wheels; they're light, strong, and they fit perfectly. Here's what they look like on a 12C:

thank You guys, looks like I have to ask my supplier to double check as 650 or any other McLaren is still to exotic for most of them

For OE stock sizes, these are the weights.

(these are the actual wheels on the car pictured)

Vivid, can you obtain these offsets and confirm the weight?

PM me a price if you can.

Will get back to you on that, just spoke with BBS USA and they were unaware of any RI-D in those specs, will find out from BBS Japan/Germany though. The only "available" RI-D that BBS USA has listed can be found here

sorry Vivid, didn't mean to hijack or anything.

my buddy who's the distributor of BBS here in the Philippines was able to get RID's in custom specs. Rear offsets adjusted a bit so that they fill the wheel wells better. Japan made five sets, two for here, one set went to Hong Kong, and i'm not sure where the last two sets ended up. But basically it's possible to commission specific specs as long as the batch minimums are reached.

Not that my friend would be of any use to you guys in the US though, as he doesn't distribute over there.

However, given the sheer size of the US market, i'm sure BBS dealers such as Vivid would have the scale to get custom sets!

If RI-D's are really not available over there (wouldn't understand why not, since they're BBS' flagship wheel,) the BBS FI's and FI-R's look very similar (just not made of the same uber strong duralumin triple-forged alloy).

No worries at all! Am waiting to hear back from BBS but that would definitely be an option. Will keep the forum posted.
