1.They say "light weight"...anyone know the savings over stock wheels?

2. I notice the fronts seem to be machined through the hub to have a fairly free floating rim surface....by design to allow for deformation during cornering?

they aren't really new, they have been out for awhile. I've been running them on my F1, I can't say that I actually weighted them however so I'm not sure on the weight savings. they handle well and seem to be very durable if that helps. I haven't had any issues with them.
