    Various models by Spoon, Volk, Enkei, Racing Hart, and Rota. Rotas are the cheapest and highly recommended here.

    www.alljdm.com is a very good place, check the vendor booth, the guy (jason) is having a group buy until the 5th, and 450 for 15's shipped, 500 for 16's shipped, etc. A hell of a deal in my opinion with shipping.

    rotas are light for the price... thats it
    they are far from the lightweight rims were talking about
    they also are nowhere near the quality and strength

    im saying if you are serious about VERY light wheels then rotas are not what you want

    they are decent for the budget minded tuner
    but for all out performance you want the lightest shit you can get (basicly somewhere in the 8lb area)

    there is a significant price difference between rotas and a true forged lightweight performance wheel though
    rotas can be had for about $450 a set
    the top quality 8lb wheels will cost you $300+ per wheel

    so it comes down to how serious are you

    Not really. 15x6 works really well with 205/50/15, and is perfect for 195/50/15. The older SE-R came stock with 205/50/15 tires on 15x6 rims.

    <_<


    Depending on how big you want to go, Tenzo R's are pretty light. i have 18" wheels on my car and they weigh about 16-17lbs. and thats good for a 18" wheel.


    RESPECT!

    Well, 15x6 will weigh less than 15x7 with the same tire, because you have less material in the wheel.

    :lol:

    But yeah, the footprints will be similar with the same tire, but the 15x7 might be a little wider if your tire requires the wider wheel for the tread to sit flatter on the ground. With the amount of sidewall that a 205/50 has though, there's really not that much difference. It flexes enough to make up for the difference in wheel size. I think 15x6.5 is actually the ideal wheel size for a 205/50/15 tire, but if OEMs are shipping their cars with 205/50/15 on 15x6, I think I'll be fine.

    :thumbsup:

    You want light go with some SSR's, Advan's, Circle Racing's or Volks 8lb's per rim is pretty good. Also the Racing Hart CP-035's are good wheels.
