i think you're incorrect about the OEM wheel weight. my 15" Michigan alloys were 46 with the tire on.gwarballs said:stock rims way more.....24 isnt bad for a cast rim.....some can get around 20 for an 18in rim but most are around 25lbs......the stock a4 avus rims are around 33lbs for a 17 in rim......and i believe that the a4 sport 17in are around 30 but im not sure.....
i believe i am correct....about the weights.....you may have had a the michigans may be a fairly light 15 in rim..........quality_sound said:i think you're incorrect about the OEM wheel weight. my 15" Michigan alloys were 46 with the tire on.
I do agree 24 isn't bad for a cast rim, as long as it's something like a 19. I thing 24 is heavy for an 18 or smaller. forged rims are the way to go for a lightweight wheel.
I guess it depends on the wheels size too. 24 for a 17 is WAY heavy IMO but 24 for a 19 isn't too bad.deezdubbin said:point is : 24 lbs aint bad at all, my asa's weigh 30lbs a piece without rubber !!
Also incredibly strong which i think is more important in racing conditions. I mean, you want light too but you know, you dont want them to deform or collapse under race conditions. Bottom line, if you care how much your wheels weigh on a street car, dont get 19's, go with 15 or 16. But if you care about looks then who cares about weight?booosted1.8 said:im actaully suprised by some of the bbs wheels, incredibly expensive, but actually not that lightweight, what companys make forged wheels, and what are some of the better forged options for lesser coin?
