Having had CHs on my TT for 2 years and not fancying LMs as they have been done to death, I think I'll stick with the Breytons. I have the OEM 18s for track so thats fine.

Thanks for the info
Looking at the wheels, there is quite a bit of metal in them. That weight is about the same as the stock 18" E46 M3 wheels. For a 19" cast it is not bad, pretty average.

The forged RAC RG4s I posted in the other thread are about 2# lighter each. They're also 1/2" wider and a lot stronger, I'm sure. No, a couple pounds in not a lot for the street. If you add spacers, remember those are not exactly light and will add to unsprung weight, though.
