You could probably buy a brand new set of black LSS wheels for considerably less than a set of used Cup wheels would cost you, assuming you could even find some for sale.

I was curious because the 260cup wheels are quite heavy in the rear at 18lbs, although the fronts are "superlight" at 13.3lbs.

Looks like I can pick up the 260 Cups for about $2100 brand new but still don't know how much LSS wheels go for since they come as part of the Sport package.

I guess I'm leaning towards early model LSS (bit wider in front) first and the cup wheels second since they're on the pricier side.

A used set of LSS wheels in black are hard to find right now. I've been looking for about a month. Just missed out on a set 2 weeks ago...

I'm assuming these are the same wheels sector111 sells for $2100?
260 Cup Wheels

Well then, if I can't find a used set of LSS wheels this seems like a pretty good solution.

Thanks Vishus :)
No problem - yes those are the exact same rims. Again, only difference in the 260 is the color offered. Sectors data on the chart (as far as weight) seems to be wrong - these rims are lighter than what the chart shows.
