Konig Ultraform

What do you guys think of this Konig Wheel?



I sold my bronze Motegis that I ran on the SX4 for a month and ordered another set of the same wheel but in the Satin Black finish, they are currently on backorder tlll end of June. The Konigs are avail now and I could go this route but they are more money (Summit did a beat a price on the black Motegi's I ordered, the Konigs would cost an extra $50/wheel).

Would you wait for the Motegis or go with the Ultraform (pic shown is the Gloss Graphite finish what I would get).

Again size is 17x8" +45 (+40 on Motegi) and again wheels would fit both cars.

Motegi. IMO, the more angular spokes on the Konigs won't work as well with the curves of the CX-3's profile.

Still on the fence about ordering the Konig's. I'm going to keep the Motegi's on order though because of the wicked price Summit gave me on them (latest update on them is they are on route could be another 3-4weeks out or longer).

There is a sale on the Konigs good till the end of Sunday but instead of being US$50 more per wheel it's down to like US$42/wheel more than my Summit price match on the other wheel.

I REALLY need to think long and hard if I want these or not. I'm not quite set on how they would look on the SX4 (yes the 5 spoke Traklites do look better) but I do like the extra lightness of them (16lbs./wheel for a 17x8" 1lbs. lighter than the Motegis).

Test fit on my SX4:



I'll do a test fit on the CX3 sometime when I feel like removing the Konig Oversteer wheel(s) that are on the car currently.

I like wheels....................they're big and round like a Chicago Deep Dish pizza yum. LOL.

Got my tires mounted up yesterday.







A bucket load of grippy goodness is coming to the SX4 real soon.......................(as soon as I get my correct centering rings bought on ebay).
