1 of the reason I chose FR500s because they look sexy and way less than most Mustang wheels.

To OP avoid anything Chrome as that will be much heavier.
BTW..Stock 99-04 Starfish 35th wheels are pretty light for a stock wheel.
Can you back that up with some numbers?

18x9 Steeda 22 lbs
18x9 Roush 24 lbs
18x9 Cobra R (replica) 28lbs
18x9 Bullitts 29 lbs
18x9 FR500 (replica) 31 lbs
18x9 Saleen 31/32 lbs (depending on who you use as the source)
Christ, those are heavy wheels. Rotational mass bothers me, so I ended up with a set of BBS RKs (18x8.5 front and 18x10 rear), that are between 17 to 19lbs each.

Heres some numbers, BTW..Im talking about 17" which are stock rim size for 99-04 GT not 18" , just want to point that out too ,which are lighter than 18" also
I know OP was looking for 18"

The Black FR500's 17x9 wheels weigh 19lbs and the 17x10.5 weigh 24lbs.
According to this member on this site ( A Vendor ).



http://www.fordgt500.com/forums/showthread.php?t=11236

So theyre on the lighter side compared to many , I know theyre "way" lighter than my old 95 Cobra R

Don't know for sure but they're lighter than the FR-500's

I don't mean to be a dick, but that's horse**** haha.

I personally weighed the Saleens and FR 500's and they're no where close to that. Anyone remember my American Muscle wheel thread? No? Look it up if you don't trust my info, I'm very familier with the wheels below haha. Trust this info I give you give or take a little bit depending on the scale used.

18x9 Saleens 25 lbs
18x9 FR500 26 lbs
18x10 FR500 27.5lbs.

Point is, it doesn't matter what wheel you get, most of the weight of the wheel is the barrel and the center where the lugs go. So I doubt any Replica wheel will vary more then 2-3 lbs. What I'm saying is, get the one you like best and don't look back. Whatever you get the car's going to be slower then a smaller factory setup.
