    I was reading a German car magazine yesterday and found an article about saving gas. To save weight they recommended NOT having the spare with you. Carry a can of that inflation spray instead. They asked: what was the last time you needed your spare?? What do you guys think? I can see doing it...

    I understand that lighter is better, but usually more expensive. So for a combined 16" wheel tire weight, what would be a good acception. 40lbs, 50lbs? Concerns, Fuel economy, and handeling compared to stock 15's I don't know. Any thoughts

    I know this topic has been discussed a million times, and I have searched high and low, and have read every thread on wheel weights. I am still having trouble making a decision. I really like the look of the Ronal R38's but it seems that they are heavy according to the information on several...

    It seems we all spend a lot of time making modifications to our cars to increase the handleing limits and horsepower of our vehicles. SO... where is the in depth detail when it comes to wheels.

    Anyone know the weight? I'm thinkin' about buyin' a set to slap on a set of 205/50/15 tires that I'll use as lets-go-crazy tires. And the rims are 15x6, right? 15x6.5 would be ideal, but what the hell, it'll fit on a 6 incher.

    I posted a response to a thread in the General Discussion and I basically got dissed from most of the replys. Sometimes I just don't GET where other peoples' reasoning is coming from... so I choose to post here... Allow me to rant... My take on so-called zero-weight engine oils and some...
