Default 99' wheel weight vs. 00' wheel weight?

I might trade some one my 00' wheels for his 99' wheels. The 99's look better(to me) but also look heavier. I think the 00's weigh approximately 16 pounds. Does anyone have the exact weights? Which ones do you guys/gals think look better?

Oh yeah RS not legacy, forrester etc.

Dolphin, I am not sure, but I believe that they are within 1lb or so of each other. That has been what I have seen posted on the board before, 6 spoke (MY00+) wheels are 16lbs or 16.5lbs, 5 spoke (MY98-99) wheels are ~17lbs. Anyone know for sure?

I have heard the same...
For what it's worth, I made the swap, and didn't notice any difference, cept I like them way more than the 6 spokers

It is my understanding that the MY00 wheel is .5 lbs lighter than the MY99RS wheel. Fours wheels equals 2 lbs lighter.
This info is from a person that did weight each MY wheels.
