Konig Hypergram?

Looking into a new set of wheels for my BRZ and came across the Konig Hypergram. Has anyone had any experience with these, or seen them first hand?

I would be looking at a 17x8 or 17x9.

I doubt anyone will have a lot of experience with them, because they literally just came out like a month ago.

I kind of figured as much since they are so new.

They caught my eye because of the offsets available. It is available is a 17x8 and 17x9 +40 which I thought would be good with stock struts up front?

The weights look good too, at 16.3lbs and 17.5lbs.

Yeah, either size should be okay with stock fronts, depending on how big your tires are. Konig makes decent wheels.

I'm leaning toward the 17x9 with a 245/40R17 tire, probably a RS-3

What's the general consensus on stock strut clearance for a +40 offset? if +42 wheels clear (they do right?), these should be fine. I would be using crash bolts too.

Depends on what tire you use.

Depends on how much camber you plan on running.

+42 has a possibility of clearing, some people have to run 3mm spacers.

188.5 5X100 +38 17.41 lbs. Nice! Sadly these came out after my purchase.


Interestingly, they are slightly lighter than the 17x9 @ 17.49lbs.
