I’d spend the money on some track day schools and coaching first before wheels. But for wheels I’d go with the forged AL as I doubt you’ll see the performance gain per dollar on getting the mag and also previously stated durability issue of mag would make me go for AL and then take what you saved to spend on tires and more track time.

Thanks mate for the feedback, I've done a few courses and will continue to do so.

Looks like i'll go the aluminium route then. OZ Piega a good choice?

I Ride: '16 Pani R, 1098R Bayliss, KTM1090R.
Pick up a used set of S wheels at a decent price and spend the rest on rubber or tracktime.
They are a pretty decent wheel weight wise, though the 1098 R wheels were lighter.

FWIW, I have a set of the Oz Gass and while they are a bit lighter on the scales, its not
really noticeable on the track. I like their look, but the bang for buck was minimal over
the OEM S/R wheels.
Thanks from able duc

I swap between my base wheels my Oz wheels and whatever else I have depending on what rubber is fitted . Never really feel too much difference between any of them to be honest . I like the look of my Oz wheels best .

Yes the OZ have my vote, but if money was not the stopper it would be a mag like the 1100SL in that beautiful colour.

Light weight wheels are probably the best performance upgrade to the bike. If you're getting headshakes from lighter wheels, something else is wrong.

OZ RS-A Gass wheels

newer design with better weight distribution, and slight lighter, only a bit pricier than Piega, but i think it's worth it.
