    Hello All,

    Does anyone have a definitive answer on what is the lightest streetable wheel/tire combo for a 550. I want to stick with stock wheel sizes or possibly +1 sizes. They took my magnesium wheels away due a wheel cracking recall. I'm just in the mood to reduce my unsprung rotational masses. Ever get like that?

    There are many light wheels that I am sure could fit the 550. I know the BBS RC are very light as is the new RGR. Many of the aftermarket wheels are focusing on weight now, so there are a lot of options. In fact, there is a list roaming the internet that lists the wieghts of most of the aftermarket wheels. Unfortunately, I cannot remember where I found it. Try running some searches on google and I am sure you will come up with some info. Hope this helps.
