    Wheels

    I am interested in purchasing an aftermarket or possibly a difference OEM set of wheels. Wheel Enhancements has a wide range for choices and specialize in our cars. Personally, I am interested in a forged wheel that is lighter than our OEM but I do like the new Carrera Sport wheel. I just talked with them and the new Carrera Sport wheel weighs 24 lbs front (8 1/2 x 19) and the rears weigh 29 lbs (11 1/2 x 19). WOW!! Those weights remind me of boat anchors!!

    For comparison purposes the Fikse Profil 5 weigh 21.4 lbs (f) and 22.15 lbs (r), the Champion RS 98 weigh 19.7 lbs (f) and 20.7 lbs (r) and the Sport Technic Mono 10 weigh 20 lbs (f) and 21 lbs (r).

    I know the advantages of lighter wheels i.e. rotational mass and unsprung weight but does anyone know of any DISADVANTAGES of going with a lighter weight?

    Re: Wheels

    There have to be some disadvantages to a lighter weight wheel than the cost. Anybody???

    There was a thread on this subject during the last week or so, if you care to do a search.

    An obvious disadvantage is lower resistance to damage resulting from pot-holes and riding over kerbs. The risk is lower with well-designed forged wheels than with cast wheels.

    Re: Wheels

    Could you direct me to that particular thread. Many times a search does not yield the desired information due to the wording.

    Thanks!!
