the most affordable lightweight wheel is the enkei rpf1, they round out to about 800$ a set at 9.6 pounds per wheel. from a students standpoint, thats the best lightweight wheel cheap money can buy. then theres the falken hanabi, which weighs 11 pounds. You can get a set of those for under 400$. if you want cheap and light, those are the best you can get

Cool, that's good to know. Also, I looked around for the Falkens, and I saw them listed at 17lbs and 11lbs. Would the 17lbs be with the tires you think? Even it wasn't, it still beats my heavy ass stock wheels. :p

honestly, ive got so many different weights for the hanabis, 10.5, 11.5, 12, 14, 17

heres what i know

10.5, i dont even know how the fuck someone got that weight on a scale, but i saw a picture, good proof

11.5, the most common advertised weight for this wheel

12, What falken told me the wheels general weight is 'around', meaning i think its going to be close to the 11.5 everyone says

14, what falken told me the first time i called, they didnt tell me that it included the packaging weight

17, probobly shipping weight

IMO, if you can find a 15 or 16 with a width of 7-7.5, you're set. You keep your unsprung weight lower, lots of tire size choices along with a lot of tires that are nice and sticky. Even on the RSX, I'm running 16x8 +30 or +35 (I forgot) Racing Hart CP-035. If I wanted to, if I can find some r-comps, I can push it all the way to a 245 or 255 wide tire and still fit it in the stock wheel well.

There's no such thing as a stupid question; just stupid people asking questions.
