I just ordered 16" RC's today to replace my 16" RX's.  Why do you think the ride is so 
much better than with RX's?  Due to the unsprung weight reduction??  Tire Rack says 
that 16" RX's weight 22 lbs vs. 16 lbs for the RC's - a VERY substantial difference...

BTW - I paid $349 for them.. their website says $379, and some sales dude quoted me 
$409 via email the other day... <?>.

I have the RC's in 17x7.5" and they weigh 16.5#. Retail is $449 each last 
time I checked.
