    curbed my one wheel pretty badly so i'm thinking after i kill this set of tires, i may got and buy new wheels. my main dilemma is i don't want to go with most of the replica wheels because they're all so heavy. i'm at the point where i don't want to do anything to the car but if someone breaks, i'll upgrade. i'm trying to find wheels in the low 20 lb. range. 17" or 18".

    does anyone have any suggestions? i'm usually a fan of 5 star. if i could get a black center with a polished lip and lightweight i'd be relatively happy because i'd be staying with my color scheme. as long as they fit, i'm down. doesn't have to be oem.

    Well im pretty sure replicas arnt any heavier then the authentics. But if you want a light wheel try the Steeda Ultralites, they look great I usually dont like the look of most light weight wheels but they look great.

    Another wheel that I think is fairly light (not positive though) is the Drift R...here is a pic of them in 19"

    The Steeda's come to mind.

    The ultralight2's are a split 5 spoke and look pretty nice too.

    thanks, i've been thinking about the ultralites for a while. if i did the originals, i like them in chrome but i have trouble finding those around for sale. i like the II's in satin with the polished lip. it'd be really nice to cut some rotational mass off the car and look good doing so.

    anyone know what the stock 17" 98 wheels weigh? i haven't been able to find that anywhere.

    if you get the steedas go for the 2s in the style you said if you want light because chrome is damn heavy

    okay, i'm starting to think ultralite I's in 18x9. but i think i'm holding off until after winter. got new tires not too long ago and i drive my car year round, so rather not have them be subjected to all the salt for a winter. although, it's been off the road the past two winters. spun 3 rod bearings one winter, had the motor replaced under warranty, then last winter i couldn't drive because i had my head crushed while at work. i think i'm going with the satin one's though. they said they're 22 lbs. i love my pirelli p-zero nero's so i'm going to get those again.
