As we do not yet have a wheel and tire vendor, and in view of the huge importance for considering weight different when changing stock wheels for aftermarket, I wanted to post this one example. While the following example resulted in significantly less unsprung weight, there are wheels that look great, but weigh many pounds more than factory StingRay wheels.

"Lowered it as much as we could on the stock bolts. Installed the HRE P101's on factory Michelin Super Sports. Weighed the factory wheels and tires.

Fronts 51.5 lbs each.
Rears 60 lbs each.

Weighed the HRE's after we mounted the Michelins onto them.

Fronts 48.2 lbs each.
Rears 54 lbs each."

HRE's are super expensive, though superb quality. Here's how this one example looks:
