Does anyone know the weight of the Evo6 TME Enkei wheels ?
They are the Enkei WTE2 wheels.

Seems like the Enkei WTE and WTE2 wheels are used on the actual rally cars and so they should be quite decent.

Thanks

I don't know the actual weight, only that they 'felt' very heavy when I took them off to clean them. I used to have 17 BBS RCS on my corrado and you could throw them about.

The TME wheels are not used on rallye cars. They are too heavy. The wheels used on rallye cars look a little bit like them, but are different magnesium wheels.

the actual weight of the tommi mak wheels are 10kg. i recently ordered a new rim and i weighed it myself before putting tires on....heavy in my opinion.

How much did the replacement mak wheel cost you ?
Last time I looked they were about £450.00 !

Thanks for the info. That is quite a heavy wheel !
Now, if only the Superleggeras can fit onto the Evo6...

The Makinen WTE2 Enkei wheels cost 55000 yen from the Japanese Enkei website, which is less than 450 Pounds.

What about some white 6 spoke compomotive mo's ?
I'm not sure of the weight but they would look 'well hard' in a 18 .

If you want light wheels look to Volk Racing or Racing Hart. A friend has a set of Racing Harts that weigh 9 lbs per wheel (not including tyre) in a 16 x 7 size.

Rally wheels have to be very strong which is probably why the Compomotive wheels are heavier.
There should be a tradeoff between weight and strength, oh and price. :)

I guess if we drive on the streets only, then we dont really need to worry about how strong a wheel is.

I guess that if you drive on the street, with holes etc, than you should be more concerned with how strong a wheel is rather than if you use it on a track.

Heavier wheels are not necessarily stronger. Lead for example is very heavy but also very weak.
