VMR 710 Weight

I just received a set of VMR 710 wheels from Pyspeed.com and I decided to weigh them and share my findings. This isn't completely accurate because I was using the weigh yourself then weigh yourself holding the wheel method but I feel it's pretty close. The scale that I have is really accurate and consistent.

VMR 710 Gunmetal 18" X 8.5 ET45
23.5lbs

VMR 710 Gunmetal 18" X 9.5 ET50
24.6lbs

**UPDATE**

Mounted 225/40-18 Front, 255/35-18 Rear Continental ExtrememContact DW Tires. Compared weight of old Style 261 w/ stock run-flat tires (50% tread front, 20% rear).

Front Stock: 49.0lbs
Front VMR/Continental: 44.4lbs

Rear Stock: 51.2lbs
Rear VMR/Continental: 47.4lbs

I'm extremely happy with my choice. Really, unless I spent twice as much on something forged I can't say there's anything else I wish I would've gone with. The tires are slightly more stretched than I'd like. Especially the front. Next time I'm going to try and get away with 235 front and maybe 265 rear. Stock M Sport suspension. No fender mods. No rubbing. Here are some pictures.
