    Got tired of using the search option to answer my own question. What are the light-weight options to the OEM wheel on a GT 350 and what is the weight savings on each wheel. Thanks in advance for your help.

    GT350R OEM carbon fiber wheels. About 15lbs a wheel, and only $4k each.

    p51's look fantastic, but i've seen a few posts about them cracking online and have a friend that had a set crack as well... track use, and he is FAST, but no thanks.

    I remember reading somewhere that P51 increased weight/durability on GT350 spec wheels after reports of failure started coming in.
    Not sure what current specs/weights are given those changes.

    fair enough, worth looking into! I normally don't post about part failures like that but wheel failures can be bad!

    edit: sent them a message asking about changes. will see what they say!

    EDIT: And what's crazy, it was the REAR wheel that cracked?! Yikes.

    I was wondering about that. If a rear broke there's NO way a front didn't.

    i noticed some lip scuffing on that front pic though, so maybe they were too aggressive on the curbs too, but either way i don't like failures like that!
