    If you cant find it on their website try asking someone selling them on ebay or something? Just a thought.

    i think the stock ws6 wheels weigh like 20.5 pounds

    what ive heard is the 17x9.5 are 24 pounds and the 17x11 weigh 27 pounds

    dont quote me on this because i could be wrong.

    so were talking probably 15 lbs of extra rotational mass....

    think thats enough to effect performance?

    how much do you think that extra weight would slow somebody down in the 1/4 mile?

    im debating on some 17x11 TTIIs in the back or just getting some pre 2000 ws6 rims (if i can find them)

    if the TTIIs didnt affect my performance i would get them for sure

    I was just wondering, wouldn you rather your car look kick ass with a new set of wheels OR be able to run the 1/4 mile 1/10th of a second quicker? Hmmm....



    I would go for looks over 1/10th of a second anyday.

    Just my .02
