Your crosslaces are quite different than the 92-99'*.

I'd also have a hard time believing torque stars weigh only 12 pounds. They should be heavier than the crosslace.
bill did u mean cross laces, cause the t stars when put on my scale were i think actually about 22 lbs cause i had to call u to confirm before i figured a price for don.

So the T STARS are about 22 pounds

I think you misread my post above. We're saying the same thing. The torque stars are heavier than the 92-99 crosslaces.

I weighed one of my cross lace wheels.
I weighed them a couple times and got the same results.
