Which do you prefer for a 500E

I like the Monoblock II's on the Black car(its an '03 E320 wagon) and I like the star type as well on the silver as well ('00 SL) By the way, some one messed up when the did the rotation on the SL. It had one 9" wheel on the left front and an 8" on the right front. And a corresponding mixed setup on the rear. I liked the 9"'s on the front and plan to do like wise. My questis which do you like better and why. Which is heavier?

I would prefer 8's in the front and 9's in the rear .... the other way around would upset the handling .

the 9's weigh more

Weight of the Monoblocks VS 129 5 spoke

Thanks Luke, But I was asking about the weight of the two style wheels not the weight of 8 VS. 9's...... Duh?!:p
