They are 15"x6" rims and weighed about 17.5lbs each, 34lbs with tire mounted, which is the same as a mounted prius tire. I did not get them for the weight, I got them because I liked the styling, color and price. I wanted 15" to lower my final drive, which it did by 8.5%. the 14" wheels are 14-15 lbs and you can pay extra for ultralight 12 and 13 lb racing wheels. Not worth the price to me though.

I want to get aluminum

I want to get aluminum wheels for my car that shave 6 pounds per rim, but it's too expensive.

The ride is good, they are good in rain, but at the track they killed my 60' by .1

They still grip really good.

I will be getting a set of 9

I will be getting a set of 9 pound each alloys for my car that'll drop 11 pounds per wheel, , 150 shipped and prolly with tires (but I know where I can get a free set of new tires anyway).

bastard! I want some 11

bastard! I want some 9 pounders too. Mine weigh 20.6 per rim. My fuel economy would probably improve by a solid 1mpg if I had 9 pounders.

HA! I'm surprised you didn't get the wheels for free too. You seem to have a gift for geeting things for free. ;-)
