Its funny how these rims dont have specs on how much they weigh in the ad, when thats one of the most important reasons for getting carbon fiber...
exactly what i was thinking. if i was someone shopping for rims i would stick to the classic method of wheel materials. but i am sure sooner or later someone will get these.
they don't advertise it because 'lightness' is not it's selling point. they are a bit lighter than average--but nothing to get excited about.
these rims are just an attempt by the manufacturer to cash in on the carbon fiber craze.
slidr once said it best: (paraphrase) "it seems that everyone would buy anything as long as it's carbon fiber"
and that's a sad thing, really. my thoughts would be that the craze wears down just like the jdm craze a few years back and carbon fiber will be striclty a Performance product like it should be.
