GT-P Wheels To Heavy?

I was taking of one of my wheels yesterday to fit adjustable KONI Suspension when i almost had a hernia trying to lift one of these wheels.
i would have to guess that they weigh more than 30 kilos each. I have ordered a set of light weight Simmons that hopefully will be ready by Eastern Creek FPV day. I am very interested to see the Time it does with the wide 275/35/18 rubber at the rear and the lighter rims lowering the overall weight.

BOSS,

How are you doing!
Can I pop you a pm/e-mail? Some important news mate! You seemed to have blocked pm and e-mail to you.

Cheers

Re: GT-P Wheels To Heavy?

Some of the Japanese car guys use AU 17's as they're apparently quite light compared to other wheels.
