Does anyone know what the weight is for the stock 16" wheels that come on the 2005 Spectra5 and Spectra SX? I want to purchase a set of 17" wheels, but I want to make sure they are the same weight or less than stock.

Not too sure of the weight on the 16" alloy wheels. Just got my 05 Spectra SX on Tuesday. I will look for ya though.

I contacted a seller on Ebay who was auctioning off a set of 16" stock spectra alloys. He said he didn't know what the exact weight was, but that they are around 16 pounds. Considering that 16 lb is considered fairly lightweight for an aftermarket wheel I have a difficult time believing that is correct. Hopefully I can find someone who has either weighed one or has one laying around without a tire on it that they can weigh. I want to make sure I have a guidline to go by when purchasing new wheels. In order to make sure I don't do anything to hurt the cars performance, I want to make sure that my aftermarket wheels aren't heavier than stock.
