Does anyone know the wheels weights yet for the various 15", 16", and 17" alloys yet? Although the 17"s look gorgeous on the GFX package, I'm a bit leary to get them if they end up weighing a ton. Obviously, we want to minimize rotational mass to a minimum so it is quite likely that the most performance will come from a base GT and not a GFX due to the extra rotational weight of the wheels and the weight of the body kit.
For reference, the stock 17" alloys on the Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec-V weigh about 24 lbs each! Not good! The 16" on the base SE-R are 18 lbs each. Something to consider is investing in some nice aftermarket rims instead which would be much lighter and still give you the low-profile look.
