GTP rims vs GXP Rims

I am changing rims, I am reduacing wheel weight, hanging brake calipers and pads to more sporty less weight ones aswell.

Reducing as much wheel weight as possible.

I need to know what stock wheel weighs less?

GTP 18 inch
GXP 18 inch
Cobalt SS 18 inch
G5 GT 17 Inch

Doubt anybody has weighed all those rims, but Im gonna say the G5 ones are gonna be the lightest only on the fact that theyre an inch smaller in diameter... Though if you were interested in aftermarket ones I would say to pick up a set of PF01's as you cant get much lighter.

I dont think that the weight of rims is really going to make much of a difference. if you really wanted to lose weight you could get rid of your spare or take some seats out.

Rotational weight tends to have the biggest benefits. I would also say the 17's are likely the lightest.
