    wheel weights

    I dropped by a tuning shop today and the salesman was telling me how Champion motorsport wheels are 1/2 the weight of the OEM's. Where can I find the published weights of all these wheels?
    Thanks

    He was exaggerating a bit. I would say the Champion wheels are approx. 1/3 lighter. For example, the RS98 in 19" weighs approx. 19 lbs.

    Concur - my Champion RS 97's are under 20 lbs each - 19 lbs+

    I haven't seen many much lighter other than some of the carbon fiber hybrids.

    Certainly there isn't much to those! What is the construction? Forged, and then machined? A casting of such a thin spoke size would make me nervous.
