Default Sticky or thread with all wheel weights?

Hey, I'm looking to get some new wheels for the bad boy wagon, but I am concerned about getting something a lot heavier than the stockers. Is there any kind of site or thread that has the weights of the most common wheels for WRX's (rota's, ssr, volks, oz... etc, etc)?

This'll get you started

The rule is

- strong and cheap is not light
- cheap and light is not strong
- light and strong is not cheap

haha love the rules. I would have to say the strongest, lightest, and cheapest wheels are rotas.

If you get a set of rotas (regular ones, nothing beefy like tarmacs) in a normal size you will probibly be lighter and stonger than stock. They are very reasonably priced too.

If you have cash get SSR comps, but they are a little soft for me, great wheels for a second/track set
