Yep...if they were the ADR knock-offs, they'd have "Sokudo" stickers on one of the spokes and wouldn't have the CF center cap.

No, ADR makes the knock-offs of the Volks...I won't go near them with a 10-foot pole.

The GT-Ns are two-piece forged, coming in around 17 lbs for 18s. The ADR knock-offs are 20+ pounds for the same size.

Yeah stock is about that...maybe a little lighter (16.5). You'll be spending quite a bit to find a wheel like that...17" Racing Hart CP-035s (the wheels Rota Sub Zeros are a knock off of) weigh about 12 lbs, and 17" Volk CE28Ns weigh about 13 lbs. I'm pretty sure 17" Volk TE/LE37s weigh around 15-16 lbs, since my 18" ones weigh 17 lbs.

Wow hi lol.. havent been logging on as much. They wheels are indeed ADR Sokudo 10.
They are gun metal black with a polished lip.
I got them back in early 03 for a pretty good price. 70k miles of nasty So Cal freeways has put them in a hurt locker and I will be upgrading to some Volk CE28N once I get my brakes.
Honestly I would agree with Verdugo and stay away from them. I have had 2 wheels fixed by http://www.fixarim.com/ for them not being able to hold any air. They would loose about a pound a day. Fix a rim told me that the casting was crap and the air was leaking from porosity where the spoke and the rim came together. They just put a big patch and sealed it.
Once that repair was done they never leaked again. I do have a 3rd rim leaking now and I will not be getting it fixed since I will getting rid of them.

You're going to "upgrade" your wheels to these despite the advice to stay away from them?

wheels are my first upgrade...

def not the ADRs... possibly the volks if i can figure a way to afford them...
i need to do some research on the trade-offs with weight...

a vw-nut friend was telling me of the importance with rotational mass...
i figured an easy way not to worry about it, is get something lighter...
or plan on doing a brake upgrade when i do the wheels.. .
but that adds to the cost on my first upgrade...
