The stock wheels are so heavy.

Active car enthusiast since 1996... This is my second brand new Scion (previously owned a 2005 XB). Loving my 2016 Scion iM Electric Storm Blue 6 speed!

Agreed, although the wheels I'm running aren't the lightest either...

Are you planning on running an aftermarket wheel Nick?

They really kill the dynamics of the chassis, too.

Along with the shitty eco tires.

Man, I'm so glad I did the upgrade.

Should be right around 24-25 pounds per wheel.

Those concerned about weight but also have a budget should look into used wheels, there's a lot out there from real authentic brands that have been on the market for a very long time which you can find for cheap, with tires.

The other option is other OEM wheels from a Toyota/Scion/Lexus. Or you can slightly branch out from that and go the Five Axis route.

Add Mitsubishi and some Subaru's to that list. I'm running the OEM Enkei's off the Mitsubishi EVO 8 MR on my iM. Specs are 17x8 +38 and they fill the wheel wells nicely
