Yup, weight would be the difference (just a personal preference). After removing the Billet Specialties 15x6 with P205R70 tire and comparing that to any comparable steel wheel, it would seem like a 60# to 80# difference on all 4 corners.

I wouldn't even know how to initiate a Google search for a "steel looking" aluminum wheel and was hoping someone here would have a source...
