Greetings!

I've have been really stuck on the black MS wheels for my '02 TR Z. I understand that I could paint or powedercoat the factory wheels but this would take some logistics that would be a pain.

I know the MS wheels are heavier and want to know (since I suck at math) what HP gain I would need to incorporate to offset the extra wheel weight. Is this type of weight, at the wheels, more of an issue than just having the extra weight say in the cockpit?

Thanks!

It will also effect the way it handle's with the added up-sprung weight. Which more HP will never make up. :z:

That parts of the car weight that not supported by the suspension. Like the wheels and tires. :cheers:
