Rims!!

I need some advice on rims fellers! I want to get some nice sporty rims for my cobalt. I guess aluminum would be the way to go cause they are lighter. What is some good advice? Also would rims affect my tire pressure gauges?

just go to a tire site like tirerack.com. then punch in what model etc. you have and they will show you what they have available. lighter wheels are def. better but your gonna pay more for the most part.

about how much does the rims and tires on the car weight? And Does it affect my tire pressure reading?

youll most likely lose weight.... steel rims are super heavy, so aluminum rims will shave weight off your car and you will have a new pressure with different size tires on there....

idk about the pressure reading, i dont have it. but i havent read about it affecting it, and my GUESS is it wouldnt. not sure about the weight of the stock wheels and tires either. if you have hub caps your wheels are heavy tho. most aftermarket wheels would be about the same if not lighter. i know the konig feathers are 17lbs at 17" before tires, and are fairly cheap.

most low level cars dont have a sensor you have to manually check the pressure with a gauge......is that what you are asking???
