Cool Lite weight wheel feel great!!!

Hi every body I have a 2013 Gt 3.8 with AEM air intake, stiller exhaust, SFR turning, limited slip and flow one race spec F1 lite weight wheel.

The last up great was the wheel, going from factory 18 x 7.5 F 26 lbs, 18 x 8.0 R 27.5 lbs to the F1 18 x 8.5 F 21.9 lbs and 18 x 9.5 R 21.5 lbs and the car feel alive.

I did not think it would feel so much better and the best part is that I can feel the road now!
Coming from having a Rx8 for 12 yrs, I miss the felling of felling the road, but with the new wheel its back, best mod I have ever made!

I put some 18" Enkie RPF1s on my 2010 years ago.

Went from stock 19"s at F 28.0lbs, R 29.4lb to 18.5"s at 18.3 lbs.

-40 lbs just in wheels. The 18" tires weigh less than the OE 19"s too.

saving unsprung weight

y ou should see how much weight you save replacing the stock 19" wheels, I got OZ allegerita 18" x 8.5 in a gunmetal? Tags w/ OZ wheels said 19.3-19.5 lbs. BR scale said stock wheel was 31lbs . so is that about 44lbs unsprung , & not needed to be spun up.? sure seems like a lot !
