The stock forged Rays wheels on the Track model weigh approx. 18.1 lbs. in front, and 18.6 lbs. rear.

The Nimso forged 5-spoke 18" wheels (8.5" wide in front, and 9.5" in the rear) weigh approx. 16 lbs. a piece. I don't have the exact figure, but I imagine the rear wheels must be a little heavier since they are an inch wider.

I swap out my street and track wheels/tires frequently, and you really can tell the difference. Reducing unpsrung weight is always a good thing.

By comparison, I picked up the full size spare in my '04 Audi S4, and got a hernia. That sucker must weigh 50 lbs. LOL

I'm not in the market for another set of track wheels, but I would like to see a pic of the Volks and know the price if you have it, jinxxy.

Very nice. That's about the same as I paid for my Nismo 5-spoke forged wheels and Kumho Ecsta MX tires. I like both the Nismos and the Volks. But I can't justify a 3rd set of wheels (I still have my stock Track model Rays forged wheels with street tires). lol

my previous stock 18" wheels were 26.5 lbs

now My 19" Volks 8.5 front= 19.8 lbs on a scale
9.5 rear = 20.6 lbs not bad for 19" wheels

Just out of curiousity, would the 2006 Base 18's be heavier or ligher than the 2003-2005 Touring 18's? Im not talking exact numbers, just if it would be heavier or not.

I can give you weight including tyres, which really is what makes the total insprung weight :)

stock 18" are 25Kgs each with the RE040

my WORK forged 2 piece with Toyo T1Rs (18x9f and 18x10R) are just below 22kg front and just over 22kg rear

saved me 3kgs per corner!
