the second set are ligher - forged rather than cast. As per the seloc techwiki the cast wheels are 8.8kg front and 9.8kg rear, the forged wheels are 5.5kg and 7kg respectively. :)

Not according to the scales at FedEx. I weighed the Exige cast wheels bare and the front weighed 17.55 lbs and the rear weighed 20.7 lbs.
That's pretty close... I wonder if Lotus' figures include paint, or balancing weights, or whatever?
