Question Weight of Stock Legacy GT wheels?

Does anyone know for sure the weight of the stock 2002 Legacy GT wheels (the 18 spoke ones)?

Also, which wheels can I buy that are between 6 and 8 spoke, 17" and do not weight more then 18 pounds each? And are not over $200 each? Please help!

Thanks,
Heather

I think the stock Legacy wheel is somewhere in the range of 16-17lbs.

As far as 17" wheels lighter then 18lbs for less then $200 each....I think there are very few...one that comes to mind is the Rota (the 5 split spoke ones).

Most strong light wheels are in the $200-$250 range.

Heather I used to have Rota Subzeros on my car. I got them for 800CAD...(should be under 600USD). They are about 16lbs and look pretty good and there is a variety of colors to choose from. You might even find some used ones on here. I thought they looked pretty good too. I ran 225/45R17 Advan AO32R's on them.

Now I have '002.5RS wheels (16inch) with 225/50R16 Kumho MX's. This combo was half the price and only a little less performance.

About 16lbs. Nice and light like most Subaru OE alum wheels.

Heather, the OE Legacy GT wheel is heavier than the RS and WRX stock wheel. It weighs 18 (or 18.5, I forget exactly) lbs.
