Didn't know 18's existed. If they do they must weigh something insane like 15 pounds.

Not the duralumin from the RI-D's that are mfg in Japan.

These are forged Aluminum from BBS Motorsport in Germany therefore FI.

What's the difference between the RI-D vs. F1? What's Duralumin?
I thought it was something out of Star Treck!!!

In a nutshell the RI-D is an even lighter one piece forged Duralumin. Compared to the FI forged Aluminum. Naturally, this means that the RI-D is also much heavier on the wallet as well .

You can reference this thread as well.
