My experience with Virgo wheels compared to steel rims 200 1991

This spring I bought Virgo rims for my beautifull 240 1991 with 60k miles.

Have new General 4 seasons 195 65r15 tires put on with 32psi pressure.

First my evaluation of Virgo wheels against 14 inch steel wheels is as follow:

Look = +A1
Comfort on nice asphalt roads: +A
Comfort on bumpy asphalt roads: -C


I feel there is more vibration and noise tranfered to the cabin with the Virgo than the 14 inch steel wheels.

I could get some Virgo for my 1982 at a good price but the performace is not there to me, specialy comfort.

It could be due to the Virgo heavier weight combined to lower tire wall.

Am I on the right track ? What is your experience / opinion ?
