Damn. I cannot decide. Please help.

Get the TE37 or the TE37SL ?
Does anybody know the exact difference in weight? Let's say between a 9.5x18 TE37 and the SL (or any other comparable size)?

Should I go 9.5" wide all around or 10.5"?
Not sure if 10.5" will clear all around.

Running 4x 19x9.5" OZ Crono at the moment as my track wheels. Not bad but also not perfect.

Here are the weights:

Magnesium Blue Volk Racing TE37 in 18x10.5" ET22:



Magnesium Blue Volk Racing TE37SL in 18x10.5" ET22:



Hope that helped! The fronts should be approximately the same difference in weight.

Run what you think looks good.
I though that only matters for the tires. If the tire sizes maintain the balance, doesn't it not matter what wheel sizes you go with, besides the fact that the actual weight of the wheel will be different?

Hi David.
Yes absolutely! That helped a lot.

I suppose that 0.65lbs difference per wheel is in the range where nobody will feel the difference and even on the performance side this minimal difference shouldn't change anything.

Exact setup as I have. Looks like standard Volk gloss black. I went with a more gloss black on mine and scratch proof paint. I have same lip and same drop too.
