Wheels

I really like the design of the wheels. Looks like they will be 17/18 std and 18/19 on the LE. I read somewhere that the LE wheels will be a matt colour but most of the pics show a regular colour. With all the carbon fiber the 4C has, I wish they made the wheels out of cf. It would save a lot of rotational mass. Thoughts?

I think CF wheels would have added to the cost greatly and it would have had higher costs to the buyers too; I can't imagine curbing those wheels and then paying for its repairs if they were şn fact made of CF

If you want to save rotational mass, go for (the less pretty) 17"/18" wheels rather than 18"/19"

If you really want to save rotational mass, get some Team Dynamics. On a low 4C, they should look pretty good.

I wonder if the LE wheels and tyres are heavier than the standard edition wheels and tyres because they are bigger.
In fact, I wonder how the two cars compare overall.. Anyone know?

I doubt that they would put heavy wheels on the LE. Also, some smaller wheels are a few lbs lighter. For example, the new 911 19" wheels are ~2 lbs lighter than the 20".

Dont forget the weight of tyres!
Smaller tyres are lighter and cheaper
