Default LBS on Limited/Spec C wheels made by Enkei

I got a question for you guys out there. (gals too, sorry!) Does anyone know the true weight of the 17x8, 5x114.3 STi Limited/Spec C wheels made by Enkie. These come/came in Silver, White & Gold. I read that the BBS's weigh in at 19.47 lbs on some guys scale. He said the name of the scale but I'm sorry I don't recall it.

Thanks for your time & info!
MM

Oh, I did a search on these wheels and couldn't find anything.

Yeah, I'd like to know too. I did the ghetto weighing technique of "wheel with tire weight"(44.5 lbs) - "the weight of tire found on Tirerack"(27 lbs) = 17.5

Seems too light to me but who knows.

About 8 kilos a Wheel; that's between 17.5 and 18 pounds

Just so we are talking about the same Wheel: here's a link to the image

http://www.japanparts.com/images/Ima...base=1&no=7603

I don't have the exact weight as I'm working backwards from the packed weight of one x Wheel; less a few ozs of packaging. Our guesstimate will be close tho'

Wrong wheel, I was talking about the wheel that comes on the 07 STi Limited/06 Spec C. The one I'm talking about looks like the BBS wheel. But I will buy the one you have in the image if have them for sale. In Silver?

Thanks for your time.
