so that's almost 3lbs per wheel. pretty damned significant if you ask me.

Meyer and Eagle BBS Japan wheels we have to develop the next generation has long been done. We as a manufacturer of light metal processing, "lightweight, strong," continues to pursue the proposition that high-wheel, A has a very high strength and excellent resistance in a forged aluminum alloy wheels for extra super duralumin-7000 successfully commercialized, extra super duralumin forged from one piece wheel in August 2011 "RI-D" We started to sell.
A-7000 extra super duralumin aircraft is being used, for example metal parts, industrial robots, as well as metals are known to be generally very difficult process. Meyer and Eagle BBS Japan subjected to special heat treatment process based on proprietary forging technology cultivated over many years, making the best and lightest wheels for extra super duralumin properties (19 inches x9.0J = 7.2kg) a we have created. (International patent pending) "RI-D" manufacturing process takes time and six times more than our forged aluminum wheels of the same size. For delivery after your order so that it will be somewhat longer, so thank you in advance your understanding.
