I have been contemplating whether to order them, but are they worth it in terms of weight savings and style?

Anyone here looking to part with theirs?

Hey RC33, the link you've provided doesn't seem to direct towards anything relating to the above mentioned rims, sure has a lot of celebrity crap though which my wife would enjoy. LMFAO����. Cheers....����
hmm - took me to a nice Mclaren Spider Anniv Edition in VO with the wheels as stated.

The Ultra Lights are the best looking wheel for the car. The new 50th wheels I like also. Sure there will be wheels up for sale on Ebay soon, if they are not available now.

Extremeride,

Used to run the steel brakes on mine, and always felt that the car was too fast for the standard brakes or maybe it was just me as im used to ceramic brakes with all my other cars.

the initial bite when you apply pressure on the brakes just wasnt there and i didnt feel comfortable especially when going for drives where we can reach speeds of up to 300km/h. i had to really step on the brakes to slow the car down. but with the new ceramic less pressure is required. pedal travel distance is slightly shorter but the pedal feel is still good.

Brake fade is never as issue for me with either steel or ceramics as i dont track my road cars i use them for city driving and the occasional weekend drivesbut theres definitely alot of difference in stopping power ( initial bite ) even in everyday use in the city,

on the track, i have got two cars the gt3 cup car on steel brakes and the 458 challenge on ceramics, which does make an even bigger difference. with the 458 it gives you the confidence to brake later into the corner and not to forget about fade, but beware of the maintenance it costs alot more as well to replace them ceramic rotors. they dont last a lifetime :)
