24.8 pounds each, and you can ship 2 directly to weld craft to save some shipping cost.

Thought about widening. Might just keep all four the same and pick a tire that will work. I know I get a little less width in the rear than if I had a true 10 inch rim, but with my luck I'd end up with slightly differing tire heights from front to rear and then whoopsiedoodle, the t/c is cooked.

I run 18x9.5 all around with 305/45/18 nt05r rubber. Had to use a 3/16" spacer up front for caliper clearance. Used extended grade 8 studs and hubcentric spacer. This combo works well for me!!

I located my turbo build sheet and found out that I have twin Garrett GTX30R turbos and from what I have found I think these are 57mm turbos. Does this sound correct and is this s good set up? From what I have read I would say yes but I would like your opinions. ty

How many cubes? Still a 6.1?

If your boost isn't falling off at redline and your IATs are manageable, then they are working just fine for you. Similar to what I have, though I don't know how well they will work for me yet.

seems like plent of boosty. Each one is rated for a little over 600 hp, so you should be good to go. Size and spool speed are relative, and not sure if trim type or ball bearing or other alternatives make a difference on that turbo. I know the ball bearing upgrade on the Precision is about $900 but you get what you pay for.
