Do VW steel wheels or alloy wheels weigh more? by Fred Fartalot
I am thinking of replacing the stock 16 inch steel wheels on my 2004 Golf with 16 inch alloy RAVE wheels. Will the new alloy wheels be heavier or lighter weight? I asked the VW dealer last week and the 2 guys there argued about it and I never got an answer and finally just left. Thank you.
