yes, the car feels lighter / feels a tad quicker. "butt dyno" notices it.

would be nice to have actual numbers between sprung and unsprung weight reduction. I don't think it is 4x or whatever most people say.

I also hear it increases your gas mileage by a small amount. I'm not sure if slightly higher MPG and a small difference in acceleration and speed is worth the cost of some of these wheels though.

(Honestly, I like my Serrons, I just wish they were lighter.)

This is a great thread. I love the look of the enkei rpf1, but if the car is not lowered correctly it ends up looking strange. Not to mention you can only seem to find them in a 17" size.

[quote=Halvie;473263]Was actually looking at those earlier. They will do whatever bolt pattern you need, right? Work's site is hard to understand.

You can not order from Work directly; only from a retailer, click on Dealers on the site. I ordered mine from Wheel Warehouse.

They custom make them so you can get the offset, bolt pattern, width, etc.., as you'd like. You can also get them painted a lot of colors. I know they do charge extra for custom paint thouogh.

Also, since the wheels are custom made in Yokohoma, in an area affected by the earthquake, mine took 3 months from order to delivery. It was worth it though.

The Michelin Pilot SS is the lightest HIPo Summer on the market saving about 3-4lbs/tire ona an 18.

Dam I'm up in the air between gunmetal with mirror or bronze The gunmetal looks SUPER clean but the bronze gives it that standout look
