anyone got an idea of the weight differences between the EX 16" stock alloy wheels, 16" alloy wheels, and the 17" HFP alloy wheels are?

in the end I just want to end up choosing the lighter choice of them all....its pretty obvious that 17s may be heavier because its bigger but its only for aesthetic purposes.

also if the weight difference is not all that different between the 16 alloys and the stock 16 alloys....then i would probably not even waste my money

I'm wanting to know the weight difference between the LX steel wheels and EX alloy's myself. Would like to upgrade, but only if it would make a difference in the mpg's.

yeah same exact thing is running through my head too....i mean i gotta admit the alloys do look a lot better than the stock allows that come with the EX or the steel ones.....but only if its worth it

a $1000 is a lot to drop if i end up not saving more than $1000 on gas in the long run


but then in your case steel is always a bit more heavy than alloys though
