Which specific model of OZ wheel are you considering?

Why would they work or not work any different on a vert compared to a sedan or coupe?

IIRC OZ is a subsidiary of BBS. BBS makes some of the best alloys. They make the alloys for many Formula 1 teams. Make sure you get a written agreement that any alloy that's unusable due to cracks, warpage, etc. requires a refund. Oral promises are as good as the paper on which they are written.

OZ Wheels are very excellent quality. I had a set of OZ Superturismo wheels 19 inch and they held up pretty good for a couple of years

i don't know what mod num they are. here's a pic of them.
the difference on a vert, is that the vert is heaver than the coup or sedan, and has larger brakes. when using ceramic pads, they generate a lot more heat. being these are a very minimal wheel, im worried they may warp even faster than my stock did.

The vert does not have bigger brakes.. there is no issue with heat. Not anywhere close to doing even the smallest thing to the wheels.

Ran Ultraleggeras as my winter set way back on my S4. Super light, very strong wheels.

As an aside, if you "warped a wheel" from brake heat I'll eat my hat.

Hmm, show us pictures of the warping that resulted from brake heat.

OZ wheels are high end Italian wheels. Excellent quality.
