wheel weights

I stole this from Lotus Talk and, yes, it was dated 4/1


New carbon fiber component
Dry carbon fiber lightweight wheel weights.

These beautiful carbon fiber wheel weights remove those heavy and ugly lead wheel weights and replace them with lightweight and beautiful carbon fiber.

Carbon fiber is used to be the exclusive realm of Formula 1 race teams and cost millions of dollars. However, our partner in China had taken the same expensive material and mass produced it for the general market.

Less unsprung weight = greater performance, faster acceleration and braking.

You could easily remove 3-6 ounces per wheel. Imagine the improvement in track day performance where you are pushing for every tenth of a second. This could be the difference between winning and losing!

No other product on the market today can so easily and effectively lighten you vehicle and increase your performance.

Place your order today!

$99.99 for a complete set with standard adhesive fastener

$129.99 for a complete set with 3M lightweight adhesive fastener

If you mention this add, we will also include 4 cabon fiber tire valve caps at no extra charge!
Thanks

What [:0] ? The Chinese have , for centuries, employed carts; you know.........with wheels!? Surely the concept that balancing mass functions irrespective of material selection is apparent? If not, get ready for the Chinese manned space shot to the Sun. Landing will occur at night to avoid incineration of course #-o.

Are you sure this post wasn't meant for April 1st. Think about it for a moment..............lighter wheel weights???? if it needs a particular weight to be balanced, what use is a lighter weight???? Is a pound of lead heavier than a pound of feathers?? #-o
Laslty, most higher end shops put weights on the inside of the rim so that they are not visible, whether hammered on the lip or glued on the inner of the rim.
Ya gotta drive it like ya stole it!

If you have experienced Chinese attention to detail, then you can guess they share a lot of humor 365 days a year.
