Got myself Momo Catania flow formed 19" wheels for their Labor Day 50% off sale. I expected them to be lighter than stock as they come 10.4kg (23lbs). What I didn't expect that stock VW Salvador 19" will be so much heavier - 14.7kg (32.4lbs) per wheel. So that is more than 9lbs savings in unsprung mass per wheel!
On top of that IMO Momo's look way-way better.

Those Momo's look great! Weight savings is a plus.
Weird how VW put +48 offset on newer gen Tregs. My '11 has +59 offset. I wonder what VW did different.

On what OEM wheel?
Only one OEM wheel mentioned.
I thought +59 offset was on the Tregs. A few places I looked it said +48 offset. Checking again today some others say +59 offset. Hard to know which is true which is why I put it's weird to see VW put +48 offset on newer Tregs. I figured someone with more knowledge on them would post what the correct offset was for the OEM wheels.
Maybe you can.

Since you like to bark that way, here's a hint for you.
You can't just look at a "salvador 19".... many wheel "names\designs" are shared across multiple models.
So you're looking at Passat Salvador wheels, that also come in a 19" diameter... different part, different specs, etc.
The Touareg Salvadors are ET59 not ET48 which is what the Passat ones would be.

Great looking wheels. I considered 1 or two Momo also. Think my forged rohanna were in the vicinity of 9-11lb each also.
