Ok so the stock alloy 15 inch wheels are super heavy for the size as I've discussed before like 23 pounds I believe. So what if I cut the extra 5 small spokes lol. Then I dont have to spend 330$ CAD per wheel for neuspeeds etc to have a light 5 spoke wheel.

Thoughts?

I think you're crazy to mess with the structural integrity of the wheel. There are lots of 17-18 lb wheels besides Neuspeed. My Motegi wheels are 17 lbs and cost $150 each.

Is this a legitimate question? Do what you want to and let us know how it goes.

I say go for it.

If you're ever in Georgia, I'll buy you a beer. We can even go fishing afterwards. We use dynamite for fishing around here.
