Wow that is actually a very reasonable price, to be honest! Looks great and now there is a new option for weight obsessives! I feel like the GT3RS and 2RS had magnesium wheels as options so it seems like a safe option with the modern manufacturing processes.

OP - if they were made in factory R sizes, then they are 11" F and 11.5" R.
Oh geez, I thought the R wheels were 11 in the back and 10.5 in front! I corrected that in my post above sorry about that. Thanks for the correction.

Hey no problem at all and congratulations! Please keep us up to date on your impressions as you put some miles on them. If you have pics of them on the scale, that would be great to see also.

That’s a great weight. But why do they look smaller than stock using the same tire. I can’t figure out what it is. I thought they were 18s.

Thanks 👍

Unfortunately the only scale picture is the one I posted above.

I was just curious about what front and rears weighed individually (generally, the fronts weigh more because, despite being narrower, they have more meat at the hub to clear the big brakes). Sub 17lbs is absolutely incredible! Thank you for posting about them!

Maybe a combination of wheel design and them not being black - maybe black wheels match the tire color and makes them look bigger? Not sure.

They do have a bigger presence in person though... especially with the depth the et20 offets on the front show.

I have a buddy of mine that has a set of wheels made by Lite Speed for his 2015 BMW M4. $6k for the wheels and they are 16 pounds apiece. He raves about them!!

Interesting, looks very similar to the casting they use overseas to make the Titan-7, VS Forged, NES, MMR.. etc forged series brands.. There's some I think that are no longer around.

Yeah it's weird... I researched quite a bit before I pulled the trigger. I tried to find unhappy customers or cases of the wheels breaking or not holding up well. Haven't really found anything but satisfied people so far.

Super weird though. If they really are that light and work that well for five or six grand, I'm not sure why they aren't way more popular.

Wow that is ridiculously light. Going from stock 350 wheels to these must feel like incredible.

This is probably the coolest wheels to grace a GT350 aside from the CF wheels. I didn't know they still made mag wheels, and at approximately half the cost of CF wheels but lighter weight, it seems like a great alternative. Thank you for posting these super cool wheels, love them!

Nice set of wheels there and compliments the body color nicely.

Is the wing crooked? Looks strange.
