I am looking for some 17" lightweight rims that won't break the bank. I would love to have the Volk te 37's, but they are pricey. Any recommendations on wheels that would look good on a black GSR?:confused:

Rota rims are fairly light and aren't really too expensive. I have 17" Rota subzero's and they weight like 17 lbs each. I mean its not super light but thats not too bad for 17's.

Yeah, The Rota's, i do recommand. The also have the roat slip streams (spoon look-alikes) and the curcuit 8 (mugen look-alikes) but yeah, the are pretty light and cheap. They also advertise that it is strong enough, even for street.

Thanks for your replies. I'll check out those brands and sites. I was hoping to stay about 15 pounds or under. I think that will put me in the same weight category as my stock 15" wheels, only with 17's and a much better look.

Rota Slipstreams are the best bang for your buck when it comes to lightweight wheels. The 16" are only 13.5lbs, but that's as big as they come. If you're willing to give up an inch they're on special right now at http://www.machiii.net/machiii/html/specials.html for $500 SHIPPED! Yeah that's right, no expensive rim shipping costs, $500 for the set of 4 in your choice of white, silver, bronze, gunmetal or black. That's a good deal. If I had $500 right now I'd buy some 16" white Slipstreams :(.

Their weight is quite comparable to the Volk 37 series rims for 1/5 the price. I'd say this is the rim for you, hell it's the rim for everyone.

I'll definitely check the site out, sounds like price is right! Thanks.

The whole set up with rims and tires should be around $1,000.

check out SSR i got the competitions in 17-8 around 14lbs
i'd look at the SSR Competitions. they are THE lightest 17" wheel. Since you have integra, you'd get the 17x7.5 which weighs 12.7 pounds. they are $375 each at tirerack.

if that's too expensive, rotas seem like the best bang for your buck.
