2012 SEL 17" Weight?
 
I have checked the search function here and google to no avail.

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.

I've got a set out for paint. Just sent a message to my painter to see if he'll weigh one.

Awesome, thank you. I honestly spent about an hour searching and rewording my searches on Google. No results. Haha.

And also, which color you painting you 17's? Good idea.

I'm very curious about this too. Especially since Enkei says..."Every pound of unsprung weight savings has the effect of reducing overall vehicle weight by 20lbs."

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.

Any word from your painter TiStick?

No, and he was supposed to be done this weekend. I guess you can't rush an artist[facepalm]

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.

anything yet TiStick? Sorry for bugging you.
