Default Lightest replica wheels?

Does anyone know if there is a weight difference between any of the usual 99-04 replica wheels (bullitt, fr500, gt4, saleen, etc). I am still on my stock 17" bullitts and I am looking to move up to 18's. Is there one in particular that is the lightest? Thanks.

Saleens will probably be the lightest since there is theest amount of material in the wheel.

Id have to disagree, Id say the FR500 or GT 40 have the least material.Full of Holes no metal
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.

Actually from what I've read, saleens are somewhat heavy for how little metal they seem to have.

What wheels do you want to know a weight for?
BBS are very light, but you'll pay for it.

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)

I know a lot of s2000 guys run Enkei RPF1 wheels. I think they look very similar to the 10th anny cobra wheels. They weigh like 16lbs and would look pretty good on a new edge imo. They're a little more $$$ than replica wheels, but like stated before... ya get what ya pay for....

Turbo has them on his car. Maybe he'll post up a few pics of it.
