i'm thinking about putting carbon fiber wheels on my car.what do you guys think? has anyone done it? any pics? thanks
For comparison:What's the weight savings? I know the 360 Forged carbon fiber rims were just for cosmetics and provided no weight savings...
I'm pretty happy with my recent order of the 20" AC Schnitzer Type V Monoblocks.. They're a bit lighter than the weights you gave above for the forged aluminum. Of course, they are quite expensive and just a few grand more could put you in carbon fiber territory (if the previous posts of $10k a set were accurate).For comparison:
Forged Aluminum Wheel Weight:
19” x 9” = 23 lbs.
19” x 12” = 26 lbs.
HRE Carbon Series
19” x 9” = 17 lbs.
19” x 12” = 20 lbs.
