Cast wheels aren't always heavier. It all depends on the manufacturing process, like spun cast. Forged wheels have a denser metal and is heavier per square inch, but then you can make the material thinner to lighten the wheel without sacrificing strength.
There's even a difference in forged wheels. Look at the difference in weights of the HRE P43 and the Volk TE37.

Someone drag a set of Volk CE30 or CN28 over to STO to get weighed.

Some of the OEM wheels would be great too, so folks could see how much unsprung weight they would be losing by swapping out for some quality wheels.

This is a great thread.

Other data sources for wheel weights: see attached pdf. TireRack also has weights listed. Nice thing about this STO thread is the reliability of the same scale/conditions, and current up-to-date info.

I have a set of Volk RE30s on my car. I weighed then when I got them but the method was not nearly as accurate as here. It was the "break out the bathroom scale and weigh yourself holding the wheel then with out the wheel and see what the difference is" technique.They are 19x9 and 19x10, both were under 20lbs, but that was with the method I described above.

Yeah scales vary a bit, but whats cool here is they've posted a bunch on their scale so you get an idea how they compare.... but I agree on our SP scales before my C20's shipped they were weighed and front 19x8.5's were under 19's and rear 19x10's were about 19.5 lbs!
