I'm looking to go with a square set up on my car as previously mentioned. It's been difficult finding a matching 17x9 black bullitt wheel, and to be honest they are on the heavier side and I have always liked the 95 Cobra R wheel.

Here is my dilemma. The SVE Cobra R replica's from LMR weigh in at 22 lbs, but they are on a 10 week back order. Or, I can get them from Replica Wheels right now, but they weigh in at over 27lbs.

How big of a deal is that? Is the 4 lb per wheel weight difference enough of a reason to hold off?

I really wish 18 inch tires were so much more expensive, cause damn there are some really nice 18 inch wheel options. More money spent on rubber means less money for track days though, so it's a better bet to stick with 17's.

Thoughts?

Have you looked for a set of original Cobra Rs? I have a set, but I use them to store my car for the winter with some old tires. Saves me from flat spots on my Drag Radials in the spring.
Someone local to me has 2 for sale for $200.
