i just acquired a set of these and they seem rather heavy...i would say about 20lbs a rim because shipping pounds were 56lbs a box with 2 rims in a box...

this is heavy for a rim, correct?

and how much is this gonna drag me down?

Rim weight does make a slight difference, your steering response won't be quite as good as it is with stock alloy's but by no means is it going to be noticable, its just a proven fact. I think that you have nothing to worry about.

Got any pics?:D

:bigthumbu I like those wheels. Sell them on ebay, someone will buy them and you might be able to make some extra money off it.

Send me those pictures if you get a chance. You have an ST, I think the lug pattern is a four-lug.
