Incorrect! Table of Wheel Weights
If you go for alloys make sure you get reputed ones
Cheap rubbish will end up having bad effects.
I still remember having Sparco DS2 on my chaser , they were lighter then the normal steel wheels. They look good plus they were wide .
I was running 235 R18 40 in front and 245 R18 40 at the back since it was rear wheel drive for better grip and less loss of power (torque)
My current ride is having staggered setup too with 225 R18 40 in front and235 R18 40 on the rears. There is no way you can have Stable staggered arrangement on steel wheels.
So it depends on the purpose , if you want alloy wheel ask yourself whats the need ?
