Lightweight Wheels?
 
Does anyone know what the lightest weight wheels are that you can buy for a WK2? Looking to stick with 18" or upgrade to 20" - clearly I'm not looking for 13# racecar wheels, but I would love to save as much weight as possible. Just curious to know if anyone has looked into this at all yet.

While we're on the subject, how much do the stock Limited 18" wheels weigh? Thanks!

Many companies will make you forged wheels that are crazy light. HRE, BBS, and many others. Bolt pattern and the like on the WK2 isn't anything insane, so there's lots of options. Just make sure you bring your big boy wallet, because some of those wheels are $1500+ each. Not for all 4, each.

I read here that someone weighed the SRT wheels and found they are heavier than the OEM 18s and 20s. Maybe I read wrong.

Yeah, they are real heavy. I had a pair on my old 08 GC.

Thanks for the info. Even my big boy wallet isn't that big!
