Volk VR G2 19" Weights

I weighed a set of 19" Volk VR G2's today, and here is what I got...

19" x 9.5" ET22 = 20.2lbs
19" x 10.5" ET25 = 21.0lbs

Those are amazing weights! They look amazing too in the Formula Silver finish. Pics to come later...

Andy,

Good that you got them early and you actually liked them Thanks for taking these off of my hands! They are amazing, aren't they. It would look really nice with the Alpine White.

I will post up some pictures ASAP. It is cloudy out right now, so they would not be the best pictures.

I did not weight the stock wheels.

Looks great. The Formula Silver is darker than I thought it would be. That's a sweet car. You just need to tint or change out the reflector.

I am fine with the orange reflector, it does not bother me. I will get the car tinted eventually. AZ is hot, and the sun is bright!

Formula Silver is an interesting color, because in some lights it is dark, and in some it is very bright silver. To me it actually looks like metal, not just a finish. It is like a polished tungsten or something.

Wheels look great but I think there is too much rubber.

I decided that I really like having a lot of rubber, after running 20's with no rubber. The ride is soooo much better. It is actually comfortable. With the 20's it was pretty rough.

19" x 9.5" ET22 w/ Nitto Invo 275-30-19
19" x 10.5" ET25 w/ Nitto Invo 305-30-19

Nearly the same rolling diameter as stock, so the speedo is still good.

If you can fit a 285 up front then it would be COMPLETELY IDENTICAL to stock rolling diameter. Your rear is already the same as stock.
