3 spoke vs. teddy bear

Question

I've read on here a couple of times that the 3 spoke wheels from (some) St205s are really light.

Does anyone know how much lighter they are than the so-called teddy bear wheels from an ST185?

Are they so much lighter that it would actually make a difference in performance terms?

You're probably right - gen 5s need 5 spoke wheels.

they need a specific set of 5 spokes too :) Tom's ones :D and i happen to have a lovely set of them sat in the modcave :)

I think the gen7 wheels work even better on the 4 than the 5 because the 4 is a more angular car,the 5 is a rounder softer look so the thinner spiky look of the 7 alloys doesnt look quite as good IMO,but they do look ok on the 5.

I have fitted the 3 spokes to pretty much every car I own, they are light strong and easy to get a hold off.

They look better without he center caps though

Out of sheer interest, what is that car? It looks a bit like a Gen 6 back with I don't know what up front but I really like it.
