Default weight issues?

I haven't removed my rear seats but is their any truth they weigh over 100lbs?

how much do the stock chrome GT rims weigh, and what is a good alternative?

I do not know the exact weight but I can tell you that the right side is heavy as hell.

17x6's stock rims are relatively light compared to aftermarket...depending on how much u want to spend on a light weight wheel. My Mille's (17x8) are 23lbs each.

the rear seats weigh a lot, but putting them back in isa little difficult for the first timer. Mine come out again in the spring, till then i could use the extra weight. When you take them out, you will notice a big difference. The car handles a little different, and you'll feel it being a little more responsive and lighter. The general rule of thumb is that for every 100lbs shaved you shave 0.1X seconds off the 1/4, but it will feel like more.
