Anyone know a site or place where they sell lightweight rims. Most sites i look at, it doesn't tell how much it weights. I'm looking for the lightest, most sexiest rims around. Also how much does the stock wheel weight? around 26lbs right? Would i be able to get 17's that will be a lot lighter than that? or should i just stick to lightweight 16's? I think 15's is too small and i do still wanna keep the nice look, but does anyone have a pics of a lude on 15's?


Also does the lightweight lugs help at all? how heavy is the stock one from honda? dunno if it's worth it, haha

Thanks

stock rims on a 5th gen weigh 19lbs...I bought some BBS RX 17" rims that weigh 19lbs as well...17" rims just look too damn good!

This might help...

Also, if you want the sexiest lightweight wheels, be prepared to shell out a pretty penny. RH 3po35r's would be my bitches if I had 4g's to spend on wheels and tires. Volk's are some good shit too. Forged wheels are lighter, but more expensive.

Lightweight wheels under 1500 with tires:
SSR Comps- about 1400 with decent tires
Kosei K1's- about 1200 with decent tires
RH CP10's/CP35's (non forged)- about 1300 w d t
OZ Superleggeras- ~1400 w d t
Rota Battles/Slips/Subz/etc...-~1000 w d t

There are more but these are my favs..... All these wheels weigh 15-17 lbs. in a 17" rim. Also look into lighweight lugs, my Kyokugens save a pound a wheel.
