I like them but they seem like a really good deal? Maybe too good? Wonder what they weigh?

hmm, well they seem alright here is the manufacturers website http://www.luffwheels.com/,there is a gallery section and im sure they are not as light as some bbs lemans but to be fair they are a quarter of the price so i think i would rather buy them and loose 20 pounds

Weight isn't always the key either, I had a set of Gemballas, they seemed really heavy and are supposed to be a premium wheel.

you are right these do seem like bargain of the century , a set of lm's in england you are looking at $5000 and they very rarely come up second hand
i wonder how much the postage would be , not cheap i would imagine

Those are definitly soo cool and I'd say a bargain too (if you do get them for that price..)

Too sad though because I would want to find exactly that type of wheels but only 7" maximum 7,5" wide...

i've watched the Luff wheels for a while mainly because i LOVE BBS LMs but can't bring myself to hand someone $4000 for a set of rims. i can't find anyone in the wheel industry who has ever heard of Luff or knows anything about them. you can bet the 18's are at least 24lbs and the 19's more like 28lbs. that can quickly kill performance if you are running a lighter rim now.

i would love if someone would post the weight of these if they can find them. or if you buy them PLEASE weigh and post. i would not expect them to be light, but if they are more reasonable than what i have posted, i might hunt down a set for my STi for street use and save my stock BBS for the track. i'm sticking with OEM Porsche on the bug.
