s/he is beautiful. Reminds me of my magdog
Thanks, I take her as many places as I (reasonably and responsibly) can. Here she is a few minutes before meeting a new friend!

We dont know, she's a rescue. I normally just refer to her as a "pit mix". Upon asking her, she replied with running her kong into my leg, which I translated to "I'm a people" so 🤷‍♂️

there's a difference? I was under the impression a staffordshire was the technical term for what is colloquially known as a pit bull
Yes - Staffordshire Bull Terriers are smaller, weighting around 30ish lbs for females. Pits are pits, with many variations, true game pits weight around the 50 lb mark; American Staffordshire terriers are around the 70ish lb mark with the head of an english staff but pit body.

24lbs is heavy as fuck. Not bad for oem, but considering the affordable alternatives, they're pretty terrible.

Heavy as fuck? no, heavy as fuck would be a 30 pound 18 in...which is the common aftermarket cast wheel.... all the rotiform, Avant Garde, 3DSM, etc... that's heavy as fuck....

edit: They are really <23.8 lb too.... if they were a 2-3 pounds lighter I would already consider them lightweight... for 19s....

"Affordable" is highly subjective, and you do realize the most common OEM mk7 GTI wheel (Austin or something) is 18x8 and ~26lbs? For an OEM wheel that isn't associated with a performance upgrade, a 24lb 19" wheel is fucking amazing

Fucking sti 19’s are like 33 pounds!

a 19” coming under 27 is good. Under 25 is really good.
