There's no way the ATS's are 12lbs for only $140 a piece. OZ Superleggera's at 17 x 7 are not that light and cost way more.

Exactly my point.

I am weighting (pun intended) to get an answer from him to my question...

If 15's = 13lbs then???


The lightest, cheapest, decent looking 17x7.5's I have found are LM5's at ~17lbs for $130 each.

Anyone have pics of these on our car??? I searched without any luck...

Demon, I would have to say my ATS' weigh in a bit less than that. I can hold one wheel straight out from my body with one hand; honestly they feel about the same weight as a 14 or 15 lb bowling ball. All I had for weighing instruments was a crappy bathroom scale at the time and it registered about 15 lbs. FWIW...

we need to weigh these!!!

My Rotas are 17lbs for 17X7.5, which is pretty descent, and I only paid $120/wheel. . .but, the MINUTE I ruin one, I'm scrwed, since they were custom-drilled on GB. . .so I shall weight, Chknwk, can you weight them for real? wheelweights.net has 'em at 13lbs as Demon mentioned for the 15, so I would surmise that they should weight in like 16lbs. . .

~~~on a related note to this thread~~~


How can so many people post grossly different weights for the same rims?

or they are split between using kremit's scale or demon's scale, neither of which seem to measure in the same units

We know which one of those is correct though.

I'd take 4 corner digital balance scales over anything every time.
