Default BFG KDW 2,question about 04 STI BBS, powdercoating ???

Hey guys,

I recently bought a set of silver 04 BBS wheels with tires off of a member here and I was wondering are these forged alluminium rims and what do they weigh? I tried searching but I guess my search was too specific. My next question is what do you all think of the BFG KDW's as replacement tires for these BBS rims? Finally, would powdercoating these rims affect them in a negative way? I heard that it might weaken the integrity of rim. What do you think?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Rudi

they weigh 16.5lbs each

your tire choice is fine, but I would reccommend a 235/45 tire...

Would that fit without rubbing issues?
