Wieght isn't only influenced by the material. It has a lot to do with how they are made. A good forged aluminum wheel could end up being a lot lighter then stock.Lil GTO said:I though Aluminum Alloy was already pretty light. Perhaps not as light as magnesium - but then magnesium can burst into flame if you get a flat tire at speed. perhaps not as light as titanium - but is anyone making wheels from titanium and if so at what price?
Keep in mind that with larger diameter wheels there is an incredible amount of centrifigal (or is it centripedal?) force and the structural integrity needs to be maintained.
