31 lbs before tires? Hefty was a good word choice! Don't mean to rain on your parade, they look great, but you would see significant performance improvement by going lighter. My old BSA wheels were in the mid 20 lbs range and I couldn't believe how much I felt the difference when going to my current wheels at about 14 lbs. You could shed half the weight from each corner and it would be noticeable in both acceleration and handling.

I got curious based on your comment so I decided to look up how much my stock Detroits weighed with tires as opposed to my new set up. It turns out that they weigh exactly the same lol. They both weigh 52 pounds per wheel with tires. The only difference is that the stock Detroit wheels are 18x7.5 and my CCV are 18x8.5. The wider wheel track is the difference I've noticed. In the future I'm most likely going to get Neuspeed 18x8.5 RSE10s in ET 45. Those wheels weigh 41 pounds with tires so I'm sure I'll feel a huge difference.

Ha, funny about the weights being the same. Either way, no denying that they look great.

To be honest installation is pretty straight forward. BUT in my case, it was an absolute bastard! M

Will do bro. I'll put up a dyno sheet to compare APR's Stage 2+ and Cobb's Protune.
