    I want to weigh mine. Carbon Fiber Drive Shaft, Aluminum Fly Wheel, and Clutch. I think I lost like 20lbs total from the Vette Wheels I replaced. But I think those wheels weighed 15 lbs more than the stock wheels anyway.
    i weighed my buddies chrome z06 wheels with 305/18's and they was 60.4lbs each and my 17/9 zr1's were 58.6lbs each..

    I think my rear wheel w/ tire weigh 50lbs even.

    SSR Rims and Kumho ECSTA's...305/30R/18 the best combination I could find for weight and road rubber width. (It took a day or so to find the combo and a few days to find a supplier.)

    I looked back through documents.

    My combo is 22.9 + 26 = 48.9lbs

    From my old tire combo weighing 59 lbs (but on an inch smaller radius) I knocked off 10 lbs...gaining 1ft-lb of torque from MOI reduction per rear wheel (at avg first gear wheel rpm during ~WOT acceleration.) 2 ft-lb gain. And a gain of just over 5 ft-lbs in 4th.

    Small, small gains...but very large when you consider adding an inch to the wheel diameter and putting about 2 more inches of rubber (x 2) on the road.

    Then in the front where I lost 12 lbs per tire and 1.25 lbs from MOI.

    So...I lost 24 lbs in the front of pure weight. I lost 20 lbs in the rear from the same...44 lbs total rear weight. I lost a total of 4.5 to 11 lbs of effective weight. When you lose 50 to 55lbs of dead weight while getting 2 to 5 ft-lbs more to the road through the 1st to 4th drive...you really notice it!

    Mine weighed 3,560lbs. last year. Now I have probably 150 lbs. of stereo equipment in it, 60 lbs. of Supercharger, a lighter TD OTA exhaust and an additional 180 horsepower!
