Sorry, I don't know the distribution, I just know the total weights of the sets. But the average is about 5 lbs. Ti lugs are worth about another 2 lbs total but won't be as big of an effect as the mass is at the center of the wheel.

the titanium lug nuts will still reduce overall unsprung weight. Pretty amazing if 20 " little lug nuts" reduce wt by 2 lbs.!

Not sure what the schedule will be, but I can tell you production cars are in process. My assumption is that the ramp up will be slow and retail deliveries will be limited for the next 60 days, especially because of the weather. In 2004 it took a while to ramp up from 2-3 cars up to the 9 per day they ended up at. At production of 1 per day on the new car, it should be a slow roll at the beginning.
