    Do you think 22lb is bad for 17" wheel?

    thats rediculous. 22 lbs!!! ouch.

    IMO, anything over .5 lbs per inch is heavy! hahaha

    naw, but .5 per inch is light
    1 lb per inch is decent, but leaning towards the heavy side
    more than 1lb per inch, might as well get some 22" chromies

    17s don't suck. They are nice.


    1.3lb/in on mine, nobody around here will agree they are nice though - it's a personal thing. If you want the extra 2 in. be prepared to make the sacrafice in acceleration. You can always just build your car to handle the wheel size, if 17s on the street are important to you. Track day they are a waste, unless your looking to pimp bitches in the pit. For the street they are justifiable for the increased curb appeal, or just the fact that you like your car better with them. Always remember whose car it is.
