    If anybody happens to know, I would like to know what is the weight of the standard matt grigio corsa wheels, which is nothing other than the standard wheels in gray,

    I am considering changing the wheels but would like to approximate the total weight, if possible to avoid damage to the suspension and/or steering.

    You can drive yourself crazy when you start weighing things on a gram scale :)

    On my motorcycle, I selected the valve stems based on weight - and the valve stem caps based on weight also. I remember I had ordered some super nice aluminum valve stem caps, but the standard little plastic ones were several grams lighter, so they won out.

    :)

    I balanced the wheel/tire assembly to 1/4 of a gram on the static balancer. That's a 1" peace of tape... it's really a trip to have the wheels so perfectly balanced that sticking a tiny length of tape will cause them to rotate. On the 458 wheels, I think I got them to within maybe 1/2 or 1 gram or something. It definitely smooths up the ride on the highway.

    Those Pista wheels are super light for their size. I would think those would be pretty popular among F8 owners...
