Zuffenhausen 17" FORGED FUCH OR HRE COMPETITION WHEELS ON MY SLANT! (PICS INSIDE)

Got the ZF 17s on today.We went with 17x8.5 front instead 17x9 and 17x11 rear with 225/45/17 PS2 front 275/40/17 PS2 rear.Front wheel/tire assembly weighs38 lbs and the rear wheel/tire weighs 43lbs.

I had been running HRE competition wheels with titanium fasteners before 18x9 front and 18x12 rear with 245/35/18 PS2 and 295/30/18 PS2. Believe it or not,the 18s were only a bit heavier, front wheel/tire assembly weighs 40lbs. and the rear is 45lbs. BUT the steering was noticeably different.The 17s feels allot easier and lighter.


PS....the 18" set up may be for sale,not sure yet....$7500 when purchased new.



Heres before with 18s....HRE competition









After with ZF Fuchs
