For what its worth, those that are concerned about 14 lbs, just drop the beer for a while, you'll lose the 14 lbs, get new wheels and look better driving!! Mind you, the hardest part of this is putting a halt to the beer!!

Your actual performance is unlikely to change. What will change significantly is the feel and the ride. The car will feel slightly more sluggish on turn in. Ride will definitely feel harsher over rough pavement as that extra unsprung weight bobs up and down over bumps. The extra weight on the front wheels is more concerning than on the rear in this regard. VMR has some really nice designs, but what is really the point when you adding that much weight and when there are PLENTY of other light weight options.

Forgestars are about as inexpensive as I would go. The F14s in 19X10 and 19X11 are 24lbs and 26lbs. A little less than the OEM ZCP wheel but with the more aggressive offset and wider widths. Not to mention they are a pretty strong wheel.
