yeap, theyre definitely pretty heavy. my 19" advan rs are lighter than the stock 18s and those wheels are wider 9" front and 10" rear and they are cast just like the stock. so the oems are pretty heavy in my opinion.

but then these rims are built by BBS which are known to have relatively heavy wheels in their cast line up. the BBS CH/CHR arent light wheels either. although the one thing i like bout BBS rims is that theyre almost bullet proof. they build their rims tough as a rock!
