    Carrozzeria Forged Wheels for SXV

    In our search for bits for the SXV's for Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, we came across Carrozzeria forged wheels. I found them doing a search on here. We contacted Matsu and are having a set built for one of the 550's. Matsu is doing a quick turn around so we are sure to get them in time before we load up for the race.

    I wanted to bring Carrozzeria up again since it had been a couple years or so since they were last mentioned on the forum. Matsu is still able to make wheels for SXV's and has been more than helpful in putting things together in short order.

    We also have a set of Marchesinis for comparison.

    Hope to post some photos in the next couple weeks.

    Good info! Please share some impressions of the wheels when compared with each other. I don't think anybody has ever had both brands on hand to do a decent comparison in the past.

    Edit: does Carrozzeria offer a 16.5 front?

    We never discussed the 16.5" front.

    They look well nice, but too expensive for me

    Sorry for the poor quality photos. We were up late last night getting bikes ready for PPIHC tech later this morning.

    Will upload more photos and review soon.
    Overall, they are a good quality wheel.

    Looks like the app won't let me.

    I have twice contacted the US importer about getting a set for my RXV (actually I just need the rear for the RXV, the front is a GSXR front wheel). They told me no the first time, because they did not have a 5.0" rim available. The second time I did not hear back from them. I wonder if there is a better way to go about it.
    I would love to have a set of wheels like that for my roadrace project RXV.
