wheel weight / tire weight

Postby Skyrock931 » Mon Mar 01, 2004 10:40 pm

Hello
I am contemplating buying new wheels / tires for my 99 Accord sedan and was wondering if there is a place to find out the weight of the stock vs. aftermarket wheels? I currently have the OEM alloy wheels and want something a little more "aggressive" in the cosmetic AND performance areas. I was looking at the Enkei "Arashi" wheels and really like the styling.

I was also looking into getting Kuhmo Ecsta MX tires to put on the wheels.

Would that be a good combination or which direction should I be looking?

Thanks for any help

depends on how long you are looking to get the tires to last. If you are looking for a 20k highway mile tire, the MX will most likely get that far, if you are looking for a great auto-x, high traction tire, the MX will get you maybe 15k or less but have great grip. If you want a bit higher mileage with a bit less grip (the big trade off) but still better grip than most other tires out there, look at the kumho 712's.

I have photochopped a pic of what my car would look like with the Enkei Arashi wheels. I think it looks pretty good.....not blingy or "chromed" out. but also not the same old racing rims. what do ya think?

remember that it isnt just the mass of the wheel but also how far the majority of the mass is from the point of rotation ;) light tires > light rims
