That's lighter than I thought. ( I heard they were 28)

I love that my racing wheels and tires are 16 pounds lighter per corner than the stockers

Now who's got the weight of the BBS STi wheels?

Salesman at the dealership said they were 5lbs lighter per wheel. I'd like to see if he was pulling that out of his ass.

My dealer said 10 lbs. I didn't get them because of the weight difference, so I didn't care.

Facts! I want facts. When I have an '08 BBS wheel broken down, I'll put it on the scale and post the results.
