What is a good weight for wheels when running our SN95's on track? Coming from VW/Audi I used some Neuspeeds that were just over 20lbs. It was insane how much lighter the wheels were compared to stock and how the car felt. Stock wheels for my mk6 GTI were every bit of 30 lbs a peice.

They were 18x8 and came in at 20.75 lbs. What can I expect to find to find for our cars without going through the custom build-to-spec route?

Any resources are appreciated. Thank you.

If i recall correctly, they are around 15lbs before i lighten them. I also do the carrier which cuts out around a pound. I filet the material between the bolts. Looks like a flower

Pretty sure most/all wheel websites include the weight of each wheel. So, you can whittle down your choices by weight if you choose to. Good luck and keep us posted on what you find!
