Will American Muscle save me some weight?

I want to switch out my stock 18"s with the staggered charcoal tire rim combo. The rims will be the 19x10 and 19x8 that can be seen on their project blackout car. Will these weigh less or more then the stock one i have?

Brian's correct! The AMR's featured on Black out are about 6-8 (per wheel) pounds lighter then your stock set up, depending on the tire you run.

Let me know if you have any further questions or need some assistance! Our Mustang Experts are here Monday-Friday from 9AM-9PM EST and Saturdays from 9AM-5:30PM EST. If you want to hit them up, their number is 866.727.1266. I can also have one of them call you directly.
