And the Rotas are heavier by the kilos.
I ended up with TMRs and the difference in handling feel through the steering wheel was a pleasant surprise.I'm not sure where this information came from but it's not correct at all.
I had posted the weights of the Rota Torques vs stock wheels in another thread a while back but I can't seem to find it. I don't remember the exact weights, but the Rotas where within a lb or so of the stockers.
Now I'll agree they aren't the strongest wheel built, but neither are the stock wheels or many other aftermarket companies. As far as weight, a lb or two on a wheel isn't going to be noticeable to the average Joe.
