PART NUMBER: 61-2730
NEWEST finish choice: the popular Konig Hypergram now with Carbon center and Machined Lip.
The Hypergram is a lightweight, 12-spoke design that is motorsport inspired in its construction, appearance and its ability to clear many big brake cars and upgrades! Yes, fits over factory Brembo and all our Wilwood BIG BRAKE options. Utilizing Flow Forming Technology allows the Hypergram to be lighter and stronger than competitors including a bigger load rating than competitors in this weight class (700kg/1543 lbs).
*~15.7 pounds ULTRA LIGHT!.
The extra machine work on the lip does indeed make them a few ounces lighter than this wheel is in the other finish choices.
Brian's APPLICATION NOTES: Likely the best bargain right now in 17x8, flow formed for strength and very nicely finished. ONE CAUTION, it seems Konig is trying to play more like Enkei and included cast aluminum fancy center caps instead of industry standard cheap snap-on plastic caps. The result looks high end compared to plastic caps on wheels of similar cost but BE CAREFUL to do little more than finger tight with the very tiny allen head screws that attach the caps, use a dab of locktite, do NOT apply significant torque to the screws or they will strip out immediately! Great choice for up to 235/40/17 which will fit in stock fenders!
On our own daily driver SUPERCHARGED RF with our OHLINS COILOVERS:
Words don't do these wheels justice...well, AWESOME, maybe...
Beautiful wheels I purchased after seeing them on your silver RF. Flawless finish and great price. They are well balanced also, needing very little weight added. Mounted 225-45-17 Continental Extreme Contact Sport all weather tires on them at Good-Win's suggestion and it's a great setup.
As an avid bicyclist, I've found wheels and tires to be the best bang-for-the-buck performance upgrade. This holds true for our relatively light Spiders as well. Switching to the Konig Hypergram's from the Abarth factory wheels made a noticeable improvement in vehicle dynamics. Acceleration improved and the factory suspension came alive. At first, I mounted the OEM 205/45R17 Bridgestones. The narrower tires looked wrong on the 17X8 rims and the rear of the car broke loose unpredictable on tires. I quickly changed the tires to 225/45R17 Firestone Indy 500'S, The tires filled out the wheel wells and the handling of the Spider improved significantly. When the Firestone's wear out I'll try some the Conti ECS. For now, I'm very happy with the aesthetics and performance of Konig Hypergram's.
