    Light weight wheels

    Can this be right? 16 lbs per wheel?
    Not that these are my favorite design but the weight is real nice (assuming that is correct) and the price it's TOO far out of line.

    Have many of you weighed your wheel or tire & wheel combo?

    Yes 16lbs per wheel on RPF1's is right.

    You get what you pay for $250 a wheel really isn't that bad for a quality wheel. It'd be hard to find a wheel with that weight and size for less (new)

    I'd recommend something a little wider with or at the very least, a bit more of an aggressive offset. That wheel will probably be sunk in the wheel wells a bit.

    Like Ethan said, 250 for a wheel isn't bad at all. Buy good wheels and splurge a little to not have to replace them later

    I wasn't questioning the price at all!
    It was the weight at that price that had me wondering, "Hey can this be real?
