Does anyone know the weight of the stock rims on the 2019 N-line? I mean the 18" as pictured here




I'm feeling to get some new rims and have my eyes on a set of Keskin KT17 Hurricanes in Palladium Front Polished, which weigh 18kg each in the similar 18" x 8" size but don't want to be adding loads more weight because PERFORMANCE

they do look really nice though...

Here's a little mock-up I made using a pic from the internet of an i30 which actually looks like mine and before I decided to go for the polished front version

That plus some lowering springs is going to look slick as

Is the 18kg with or without tyres? my 18" Koya SF01 rims are 8.5kg or roughly 20kg with tyres, that's about 2kg's lighter than the stock 16" alloy wheels with tyres.

I'm assuming without tyres but that seems very heavy. Maybe it was 18kg for the set. More research required

Checked on another website and it says 14kg so they're definitely thicc bois. Time to find some other options. At least I have a reference point now, thanks Craig!

Of the top of my head...Koya - Enkei and Advan all have light weight options.
