According to this site:
http://measurespeed.com/ssr-rims-wheel-weight.php
the SSRs in 18 are ~< 20 lbs, which should be lighter than a pair of 19" Volks.. although I am not 100% for sure.

I believe those volks are ~27 and ~28 (according to Ray's) and the ISF
are 23 and 27ish, so not much difference given the ISF wheels are totally forged.
