Please show me how 19's ever played out in the Subaru Motorsports world. IMO I'm not going to run those 19s ever.
The Dunlops in 245/40/18s are 25lbs each according to tirerack

The Yokos tire 24.3 according to Yokohamas site (https://www.yokohamatire.com/tires/advan-sport-v105)

So the new rubber may actually weigh less, the wheels being forged vs cast may be able to wipe out the weight penalty for the larger wheel. But we really won't know until someone weighs them.
