    Crazy light! One thing I wondered about these carbon fiber wheels, do they have a lifespan? Being a relatively new product to production vehicles, I'm curious if they will last 20 years with occasional track use, etc??? Just something I would have to consider if that was the case, any input from the experts? I know I've seen a rim or two blowup at the track, and those are alloy!

    The scale shows the combined Tire and Wheel way. I put the wheel weight in the green Banner.. put your glasses on Ed...

    I already did the math subtracting the tire weight. Tried to make it easy for you...

    Thanks Stormcat. Also now I'm wondering if the weights I gave are for wheel + tire?
