Any other wheels / anything get released?

New volks for our cars are probably on par with the lightest you can get, but they are so ugly

It's sad that BBS are not in there . I was shocked when I found out they weight 25+ lbs.

I like those TSWs and the Neuspeed 07's. Anybody drag or track with say Detroits and go light? Is it really that big a difference to justify the cost? Oh and did the VW inserts from your Detroits fit the TSWs or did you have to order some in a different size?

Thank you

the centers on the TSWs are decals. They are a larger centercap than the Detroits.

Work Meisters. Weight with tire is 38.5lbs. I have thought about painting them matte grey in a year or so just to mix up the look. Note the Michelin Super Sports are 3lbs lighter than the previous PS2s

Was actually looking at those earlier. They will do whatever bolt pattern you need, right? Work's site is hard to understand.

Did anyone actually feel a difference in performance by reducing unsprung weight on this car?
