Ox-y-GenIII TiStick, thanks for trying. And pics of your winter 17's on the car? Can't wait to see them.

also if anyone has the weight of the stock 17's WITH tires I can figure out what the weight of the rim is by just -'ing the weight of the stock Continental ProContacts. Let me know anyone. Id weigh mine but don't take my wheels off myself since I have no tools at my new apartment yet and no scale too. Lol.

That's way too much. It's more like a 5-6 lbs (wheels) and 7-8 lbs (tires) overall reduction per vehicle (i.e. each wheel or tire is reduced by one pound, four pounds total)

My painter didn't weigh them prior to mounting. Sorry.

Ox-y-GenIII I still can't find anything on google. If I had other wheels I'd take one off and get it weighed without the tire but I don't. haha.

Ox-y-GenIII I know the ST Wheels are 25lbs each. Titanium 18's are around 27lbs each.

And I've heard the same thing 2012sel. If I can shave off at least 3lbs off each corner thats 240 "lbs" haha.

How much do the SEL 17" wheels weigh without tires? Not the 17" black painted ones but the standard silver multispoke ones.

I'm just trying to determine if/how much weight Im going to save with my new 19.8lb wheels on order.
