    edit: and as far as tires, unless you want a 'performance' tire, go with Falken Ziex's. They're a good, inexpensive tire that handles well in the rain. If you want a more performance-minded tire, go with Potenza S-03's.

    I'm going to say Rota Slips because they're the lightest and Michelin pilot sports because they're an amazing performance tire.

    IMO I like the Bronze Rota Grid's. they are pretty much the Volk TE-37 Knock-offs. I was going to get Circuit 8's but everyone and their mom has them around here. For tires, some people will disagree, but I like the Kumho MX's. Never had a problem with them nor have a few friend's who have them as well. They are a excellent dry traction tire and perform good in the rain.

    I love the group N's or you can wait till they come out with their new jspec(?) wheels. Rota will be coming out with new wheels in the middle of 2006 to comemerate there anniversery. But as for tires i am not too sure, i am about to begin traveling that road of finding new tires after the winter.

    w3rd. I meant that they were the lightest rota's, which would be the only reason why I would purchase a rota. I don't believe in going up in wheel weight for aftermarket rims because its a downgrade rather than an upgrade.

    ssr comp's (one of my favs)
    enkei tarmacs n rpf1's (another one of my favorites)
    many volks
    velox pro series
    etc.

    www.wheelweights.net for most wheel weights.

    they dont have them in the size i need them.. plus i have no snow here.. mainly dry roads year-round.. a little rain not much though.. so all season tires are not needed in my case
