Quick wheel weight question for ModBargains.
The 18" Staggered (18"x8"et38 & 18"x9"et40) setup of the E9x M3 Replica rims are listed as 23 lbs & 24 lbs. Is that accurate? E9x M3 Style

I am debating between those and the Sportline CS.16.

I currently have Stlye 68 rims and don't want to change them out for rims that are considerably heavier. Have you guys actually weighed those rims? I see pictures on your website of the Sportline CS.16 on the scales, but none of the E9x M3 Style rims.

Can you, or anyone else confirm those weights. I read somewhere that these actually weigh closer to 27-28 lbs.

The Sportline CS.16's are significantly lighter than most other wheels on the market, while still offering them at a low cost. Check out the weights, but the benefit of this would easily be better performance. Lesser unsprung weight from brakes/wheels/tires, is worth 10x more in weight savings than if it were in the cabin for example:

*Sportline CS.16 CSL Style Wheels 18" & 19"- BMW E36/E46/E9X/Z3/Z4

Ok, so lets say I go for the Sportlines. Would this setup work without rolling/pulling?

front: 235/40/18 18x8.5 et35
rear: 265/35/18 18x9.5 et45

This is for a 2004 330 convertible, stock sport suspension
