    OK so i have a set of gun metal 16x7s on my dx coupe right now. they arent the heaviest thing (about 30lbs w/tire). Im gunna be buying a 93 si and i think i might want to autoX it but not sure. Do you think i could get by using these rims cuz i would hate to spend money again. By the way the tires are Yoko Paradas.

    I checked the reference section and i found that the only team locos listed that were 16's are the Team Loco 142's and there are the 16 x 7 and they weigh 22 each. I really dont know how they will do in the autox but if you think about it they are almost 2 times heavier then alot of rims. Maybe you should ebay the rims or sell them with you car. Then you could get some slipstreams and save 40 on your new car. But thats my .02 and its your money.

    for autocross you really should be on smaller rims than that
    15s or smaller (smallest that will fit over your brakes)
    and as light as you can afford
