They're not track wheels. They're street wheels. So yeah, duh.

Street wheels can be light as well. Less rolling weight, better performance. So thanks for your insight.
Yes I agree they would be considerd heavy for racing standards, but these wheels kick ass in street appearances and just pure panty-dropping awesomeness. I would think anyone looking for less rolling weight and better performance wouldn't be looking to buy a set of 21 inch fat-lipped wheels. I have two other sets of track wheels (dry/wet) to avoid running my street wheel/tire combo.

Yes you are right. But like Slick said, people interested in lighter wheels probably aren't looking for 21" deep concave. But it should be noted that I have run these at the drag strip and noticed zero decline in 1/4 mile times. They really do look amazing though and anyone who buys them will get a great deal on some beautiful wheels.

Cool. They are definitely good looking wheels. Curious if somebody can put up more pics of them on a GT-R.

It's going to be a little bit of a surprise... Build will start in March. Still some details to be addressed with regards to the engine, interior, exterior, etc. Theme is locked down. Once the build starts, I'll as well as the builder, will post updates.

Going to keep the 2014 SS BE stock for now (with future Mods to it minimal) and build the project off a donor car. Looking for a high mileage or salvage GT-R since be car will be gutted and built up.

As an aside, what bumper does that beautiful silver car have? I love the inlets for front brake cooling.

I honestly don't know. I guess he sold it a while back. I agree though the large open front looks really good.

I think it's either top racing, or top secret.
