    Can't chew him up too hard, that list is 5+ years old. Which means most of the wheels on it won't be available and most of the wheels sold today won't be on it..

    The SSR Type-C weigh around the same(both are advertised around 9.3lb for the 15x7). The CP-035s came in 6" wide though which is of course lighter than the 7" wide ones.

    Volk TE-37s are pretty light also.

    Rims with no spokes have to be the lightest
