anyone know the weight of competition pkg rims?

Hi guys,

Does anyone know the weight of the (ZCP I think) 19" rims alone? The same style a s GTS uses? While on the topic of weight, what's the weight of stock 19" rims?

Thanks

ZCP wheels: 25.4 lb F, 26.6 lb R
GTS is identical to ZCP except painted black.
Non-ZCP 19" weigh ~0.5-1.0 lb/wheel less because they are forged and not as wide as the ZCP wheels.

Really, the ZCP wheels are wider than non ZCP? I thought the tire size was the same, is it not?

oem tires are the same size for both zcp (359m) and non-zcp (220m) 19s...the 359m wheels themselves are half an inch wider front and back...

always remember, search is your friend ...

Correct. Rim size is 19x9.0F and 19x10.0R, which is a .5" wider than non-ZCP wheels. I think that extra half inch accounts for the difference in weight, more so than wheel composition/manufacturing. I'm sure the ZCPs are plenty strong!

Thanks for the replies guys.

Because the tires are the same on both rims, does this mean that the ZCP rims will have more of a tendency to "roll" the tires in hard cornering?

The tires will roll less. You are stretching the same size tire onto a wider rim which means the tire will not roll (sidewall flex) as much because it's already stretched out.
