Who said you needed to spend $2k for lighter wheels?
Going from a 16" wheel on an A4 1.8T to the S4tt wheels makes a noticeable
difference in ride quality. What is so difficult to understand about that?
Unsprung weight has a major influence on how the suspension works. If you
don't believe me, you need to actually drive cars with heavy and light
wheels side by side.
There are plenty of wheels that are lighter than the 27lb. Ronal S4 wheels
that go for a lot less than $500 each.
Just because _YOU_ don't feel that it is worth it doesn't invalidate my
point that heavier wheels are detrimental to ride quality.
Who pissed in your corn flakes?
