I probably saved 60 lbs in tires and rims because the stock 18 rim and tires are the heaviest I've ever encountered. I think they weigh more than my old 20" SUV tires and rims. Lol.

I saved another 25 lbs by cutting out the stock cats and resonators and replacing it with straight pipe.

I believe this has me convinced CF will not be the first upgrade I make on the car. Thanks everyone for your knowledge. Look for a new thread from me on wheels and tires in the near future
