Yep. That's what I got. So much for the BS on this forum about 24.5 lbs.

When I bought mine I had a chance to pick them up with no tire, and the one in the show room a few times, the stock 20x9 is about 32 lbs and whether its 26.2 or 24.7 the TSW was alot lighter then the stock wheel, was very noticable.On the road it feels lighter, or maybe easier over bumps as if you had softer shocks and handling and response is better. All that matters

Well what ruined it is that my Enkei Reijin wheel setup is like 8lbs lighter and feels way better, both in steering on the front and in acceleration in the rear. Now the TSWs feels like anchors . Enkei Reijin weighs 22.8lbs each but only come in 19x9.5. Stock 20x9 with Pirelli was like 73lbs each, Enkei Reijin with Hankook V12 evo combined weighs in at 52lbs a whooping 21lbs difference each totaling 42lbs off the rear end alone , OUCH, stock 20x9 = 37lbs.

I am tempted to go forgelines at 19x10s honestly. The car feels like a freaking go cart with the Enkei. So freaking tossable you have no Idea. But the thing is I want to at least run a 285 tire and on a 9.5 inch rim that leaves too much side wall flab.

Check out 'Moment of Inertia' to understand why 19s can have any even greater advantage than just lower weight over 20s...

TRUE BRO. I was going to run your setup with 18x10s all round but can handle the low in my area with these really nice roads we have in Massachusetts .
