You gotta beast Fadi. I know all the work you put into this car.

Ditch those factory twist. I know they're hollows but they're heavy.

Factory battery is 50 lbs and odyssey is 24. Rims + battery = 60 lbs

savings!

Maybe no weight reduction but interesting to know how much weight you add to rotating masses when adding wheel spacers.
All the spacers are from FVD Brombacher and measured as a set of two

7 mm wheel spacers + longer bolts, 1,71 kg or 3,76 lb
15 mm wheel spacers + longer bolts 2,59 kg or 5,70 lb
23 mm wheel spacers + longer bolts 3,45 kg or 7,60 lb
OEM bolts 1 kg or 2,20 lb

I hear you bro! I pulled all factory carpet and sound deadening and installed
Ozite carpet and paperboard molding. Ozite looks as good or better than
rs carpet , it's durable and it weighs 18 ounces per square yard. But the cabin
sounds like a nuclear holocaust.
