I think it is great that we are finding more and more wheel options for the 300c. But for me, it is like being offered candy that I can not eat. Nothing worse for me than getting excited about a wheel, finding it at a price I can live with, buying it and putting it on.... and hating the result. For instance, I had a 98 Mustang Cobra that I took from 17" wheel to 18" Chrome. The factory wheel and tire combo was about 45lbs, the 18" wheels and tires where 75lbs. It was hard to turn, destroyed the power and was really disappointing...but it looked good.
So, what I'm trying to say is it was my mistake because I didn't know any better at the time how big an impact to the enjoyment of the car the wheels make. Now I do, and I will not even consider a wheel until I know how much it weighs in comparison to the factory wheel.
I have only found one person willing to offer info on the factory wheel weight, approx. 55lbs with the self sealing tires (18"). With this in mind, I'm looking for 20" wheels that weigh no more than 30lbs. I have found a set 20" chrome dVincci Rims (36 lbs) with Nitto tires (25lbs) that is heading in the right direction.
Suggestion to anyone posting pic's, or stat's on wheels and tires. Help us all out and try to include accurate as possible info on wheel weight. Just trying to keep everyone from making a potential $3000 mistake.
