That surprised me since the 18x8.5 (BMW fitment) is listed as 18.4 pounds. Was hoping for something lighter.That is correct, the 17x8.5" ET43 weighs 19.6lbs with paint/topcoat. Our listed weight figures are pulled from the average of weighing each set of samples in person, rather than CAD estimations.
The VW SM-10 utilizes design aspects from our Porsche 18x8.5" ET42 SM-10, which is a more fair weight comparison at 20.5lbs. The VW SM-10 has quite a few design differences and improvements (specific for VW) compared to the BMW SM-10.That surprised me since the 18x8.5 (BMW fitment) is listed as 18.4 pounds. Was hoping for something lighter.
