I'm surprised to see that the ADV.1's weigh that much. My Champion RS-98's in 19x8 and 19x10 are approximately 17lbs. and 19lbs. As far as color goes, it's a matter of preference. Personally, I like the look of black wheels.

Hard to say without a photoshop -- But I do like the contrast in the ones you got...

Not a fan of the Matte Black. Keep what you got, but then I'm a gentleman

Keep 'em

They will look stunning with the red car. Keep them.

I like the greater contrast of the matte black wheels vs the guards red exterior.

Matte black. With your mods, no sense in contradicting that by going the old man route with the silver

Mass weight? No such thing.
Mass and weight are two different things. Yeah, I'm a smart a$$

Here the dealers are considering a 10kg wheel to be light. Less than 10kg is considered SL (super light), and worth an arm & leg. That said if your wheels are as light as you've mentioned then you can go out and laugh at many out there who got similar supercar SL wheels (they all paid over $8,000 for their set).

Lucky you mate is what I can say
What's $8600 ? The Champions ?

I bet the Champs were something like $2k-$3... as in 'normal' prices?
The Champion RS-98's with custom color run about 6K.

When you say replica, it means they are not the real deal? They are not real ADV.1???

Ah...no surprise then that they are that heavy. I don't think Rota makes 130 PCD wheels though. I may be wrong.

Wait, those are replicas?
Madmods, how much would it take for you to get me 4 of those in the US?
