you won't see any diff btwn an SE and a spec-v with regards to wheels. and i had the opportunity to make the switch but honestly they are WAY too heavy and they don't look good enough to make up for that. even when looking at your other potential wheels at a 12 pound difference, from what i understand wheels/tires weight have a much more significant effect than any other part of your car... something about rotational mass. if i recall what i've seen posted before, its something in the neighborhood of 4x more weight with concern to your car's performance.

sorry to jack the thread a bit, but how much do the SE rims weigh? they're 16's i believe. I have a GXE with the synergy package so i don't have the hubcaps, was wondering how much they weigh.... 21lbs for the spec, damn

so the general thought is that the spec rims would be a big waste... i love the way they look and i can get em for cheap... but ifim gonna feel a dramatic loss in hp then i dunno!?
