Just wondering what your opinions are on the ride quality and performance...i've got the hots for some 16" wheels. They'll be need to be lightweight and have to be big enough to fit a good big brake kit in (like project mU), thanks!

My old wheels were 16s w/ 205/45 Yokohama A520s. I loved the handling of em. Be careful with your offset if you're running big brakes. Not many kits fit behind 16s.

I have 16s w/ 40s and they ride smoothly and handle well. Sold my 17s, best move yet. Take off highly improved.

had 205/45/16's in my car before. grip was good. smart thing to wanna keep it lighweight coz on mine, weight was an issue(2piece). plus i wanted the tucked look of a 15" better.
16" te37s are light too.

Yeah, weight and wheel mass is always a concern for me in performance applications as well.

I dont know the weight of any of their products. Along with the wheel and tire weight, I want to reduce caliper and rotor weight.

Does anyone know how heavy they are? I believe Mu uses forged aluminum.
