Question: Does anyone have these OneLug wheels in their F?
I prefer this model (pictured), but they have several others, with color options........ :cool:

Haven't seen anyone have them on an F (doesn't mean anyone doesn't)....what would it take to go with a one lug? The F isn't a one lug car so it would take some work to change it to a one lug wouldn't it? I'm not familiar with one lug wheels so I'm curious as well :)

Looks like the wheels come with adapter plates................:cool:

Looks like the classic knock off style of wheel. I believe those lugnuts become locating pins that fit in the backside of the wheel to drive the wheel. Knock off wheels provide a very unique look for sure. The adapter plates and center lock nut are left and right side specific. Not sure of any weight savings though, as the material that is normally removed for lugnut holes hasn't been removed on these. Another good 3 pc forged wheel option is http://forgeline.com/

Well that answers my question hsemecar, thanks! :cool:

Like Doug said, are you looking to save weight or just for looks? Those will probably be right around if not more weight with all the adapters and other hardware they come with :)

With this much horsepower, what's a few extra pounds? Looks are what I'm after in a wheel / tire package.

Granted, the "F" has a good bit of ponies, and if your looking for good looks then go for it. But what a few extra pounds means to a true sports car enthusiast, like me, is more rotating mass on each corner of the car. That means more effort to get it going and more effort to slow it down which equals slower lap times and slower overall performance.

What Doug said is the reason I asked :cool: A lot of F owners are going with lightweight one piece wheels which is why I asked the question :D

If your going for looks, I'd say call them and see if they'd fit the F. They are a good looking wheel! :)
