I think it's because the tire itself weighs more. Just for reference I've weighed every single tire and wheel I've ever bought from tire rack and they have been spot on every time.

I never dyno tested them so I couldn't really say. It could have been a placebo effect but it seemed as if the iPD dimpled pipe had stronger midrange for some reason.
The Werks def had greater internal volume.

The Challenge 18" is probably lighter but I would like to stick with 19's.
I have the leggera and i'm pretty happy with it. Not my car but it gives you a idea:

Any idea what the stock one weighs?
