Wheels?
I'm finally getting a little tired of the stock look of my GTS... thinking about throwing some wheels on the old girl. Before I go through with it though, one question comes to mind.

How much will this slow me down?

I've been eyeing a set of 17-18" Racing Hart C5's. Does anyoen know what these weigh as opposed to the stock GTS rims? Also, will the bigger size in itself slow me down?

Thanks everyone.

correct me if im wrong but yes larger rims basically means that you will be slightly slower but unless you are a hardcore racer and interested in times i doubt you will notice it. hope this helps!

and racing hart is sweet! thumbsup good luck with it all
