Put the Summers on the ALCOA'S!!!

They are MUCH better for those "Spirited" summer driving experiences!!

They look spectacular on my 17 SIM M6, vs the cast painted slugs!! FORGED=stronger also MUCH lighter= less un-sprung weight (around 13lb +/- or so apiece!), and better overall steering response!!!

I know this cuz I JUST recently acquired and installed a complete set of pristine 15's with TPM's, and low mile Indy Firehawks, (Thanks! @NebraskaSS !!). The difference was staggering!! The Firehawks have much quieter sound, and the difference in grip is not all that far off of the 050's. They are both Bridgestones in reality. Now that said, I live (for now!) in SoCal and frigid weather is not an issue here!!

But really, save the sparkly finish wheels for the summer car show season!!

The Alcoas are much heavier than 13 lbs https://www.ssforums.com/threads/ss-sedan-wheel-directory-2-0.90650/#post-1575730

My summer wheels are actually a little bit wider than stock while being lighter.

Somewhere there is the actual weight of the forged and cast wheels thanks to a member who weighed the bare wheels.
