    HPR5 is a...

    The VMR's are cast wheels (same as all normal/generic wheels) so they are not lightweight wheels. You need to pay big bucks (at least double or triple) if you want a lighter wheel.

    I believe the water pump and thermostat is one unit on these engines, so it was probably faulty when it was replaced initially.
