    I'm getting the stock rims on my Roadster (6k mi) swapped out for a set of black sport wheels on Friday at the Newport dealership. Would be best if they could be picked up from the dealership where they will stay after the swap. $400 seems a more than fair price.

    Get the wheels chromed. They look great that way.

    How much weight does that add to the wheels?

    Probably not more than 1 pound of chrome per wheel. About the same amount of dirt I collect as I dust of the Porsches and Vetts with my "Go Pedal"!

    They let pick pick up one of the new sport rims before they put them on and holy crap are they light! You can really feel the difference in the handling as well.
