19" x 8.5" - 24.2lbs
19" x 9.5" - 24.2lbs

They are not light, but they are lighter than a normal Spec5 wheel. I am glad you actually received them.

Wow, that seems appear heavy. So, the CF is clearly for show only. "Dynamags" or whatever they are called are below 18 lbs front. My RC8 Racing Dynamics wheels are 18.3lbs for the same measurements 19" x 8.5" and have no CF at all.

yeah i have never intended to push the limits of my car...there's car seats in the backseat. so most of the stuff i do is for show, it's what i like.
if i want to push the limits of a sports car, i'll buy a Porsche or something along those lines, something with 2 seats. As for the M3, i like what i have, this should be pretty close to my final set-up

Oh no, donīt get me wrong, I am not at all criticizing your decision to get these wheels, I was just curious to see if the CF was for show or not. What you use your car for is really your business and completely respectable at least to me!! Unless you paint it purple with tiger interior and use those wheels that continue rolling even when the car is stopped. Haha! And even then if it makes you happy!!
