Confused..."Should I Replace my Wheels"?...HELP

Should I sell my 3 month old Gianna Blitz wheels that cost me $2800 and buy the new American Racing Torq Thrust. I feel my wheel are to heavy, the torq thrust only weith 30 lbs. but my Gianna's are the best wheels in town.

WHAT SHOULD I DO... SELL OR KEEP?

How much do they weigh? What's most important to you; looks or performance? If you like the way they look and you don't mind the performance penalty then keep them. However if you like the Torq Thrusts and can afford to make the change, then get them instead and enjoy an improvement in performance as well.

How much weight difference are we talking here?

I say get the torque thrusts or another wheel. Those current wheels are hideous IMO.

Both of the wheels you are comparing are heavy cast aluminum wheels. In similar sizes, chances are they will weigh the same. If you want lightweight wheels, go with a forged wheel.
