Sucks how the Honda site ripped that info from the original wheel weight site, without giving any sort of credit.

Here are mine: link



Anyone have 16x7s any lighter than that?

i've been riding on Comps for 5 years and have yet to bend one and I live in NJ and drive my Miatas ~70k miles/yr. My girlfriend on the other hand damaged 2 last summer driving into a curb at like 40 and my father damaged 2 driving my girlfriend's car into a mountain at unknown speed.

pic from mountain incident




spent $600 repairing SSR Comps last summer. ugh.
