I've been looking at some possible wheel options off tire rack and I'm not sure exactly what I need. Here is an example of two forged wheels that interest me.
Volk Racing RE30 18 x 8.5 @ 17.0 lbs.
SSR Competition 18 x 8 @ 14.5 lbs.
What would be the better all around daily driven wheel, and is the trade off in Volk weight worth the advantages in wheel width, or will it barely be noticeable in street use?
The Volks are heavier, but allow for more tire on the road.
The SSRs are much lighter but also lose some of the width.
I've also wondered how the ~2 lb. difference will affect acceleration/steering feel/braking.
