i weighed my 15x3.5 skinnies with 185 cheapo street tires and 15x8 rear draglites with 235/60 MT dr's and they were 28lbs for the skinnies and 37lbs for the rears..thats 130lbs total

difference of 98 lbs of Rotating Mass..i picked up close to 3mph and almost .2 from that alone

i couldnt believe how light the skinnies were..

..you know what happens when you go to pick something up,and you think its going to be really heavy,so you put a little more effort into it,only to find out its not heavy at all..lol..

most of the the diff is probably in the auto trans and the blower he has on there,plus whatever options the car had from the factory..also cant tell from the avatar but his may be a hatchback
