    i would get CP-035's ... but one of those costs close to what a set of rotas cost
    so for budget minded people just get the lightest rims you can comfortably afford

    the rotas or the heliums are good choices
    if it was me id go with the heliums just cuz everyone and their grandmother is rolling on rotas

    That was my next question, what tire size would be best and also what brand. The Group Buy looks good, so Dunlop's but what size?

    Thanks

    its a 15x6.5 so go with a 195/50 or 205/50

    im not sure if your going to get a choice with this groupbuy though

    I'll ask the guy but it seems that the 205/50's are more common?

    Thanks for your help. At first I was looking at some 17's and yes chrome. Gay I know, but 20-26 pounds is going to slow me way down. I'm going the right way now, I think. Less rotating mass, ha ha I just learned that.

    Thanks Again

    I have those Falkens since I needed allseason tires here in MT. They're not too bad, but I think I'll rip them up on the auto-x course.
