Light Wheels

Ok guys,

I'm after the lightest wheels I can get away with in a dark grey/black or anthrosite colour. Something along they lines.

Any suggestions ?

I was looking at the KEI wheels which are under 10kg. Specific weight not available.

I was also entrigued with Advan TCII or Compomotive but am not sure if a white wheel would look any good on a black car ?

Your techy in put as well as any suggestions would be useful.

Cheers


Stuart

I've always liked the SSR GT2 and Type C. An 18x8.5 wheel in both models weighs about 7.5kg.

Cheers

The only company I know that imports them is Envy .

I don't know cost, but you'll probably be looking at roughly 350 per wheel.

Cheers

You will be hard pushed to find anything lighter than the Superlegras

Not sure what my 19's would weigh ?

They are a 19" wheel which to me is just too big for a car to handle/accelerate properly

The road surface around here doesn't welcome a small rubber band tyre

Hense the reason going down a size and looking for a lighetr wheel if possible. Not sure what Compomotive wheels weigh or the Buddly Club wheel ?

I do like the Advan TCII as well.

Trying to find out if the OZ Superlegra 3 is any lighter in an 18" wheel ?

Did you see EVO400's old wheels dont know if he still has them, he was selling them at some point. They are very light still not sure if there will be much in it weight wise, although am sure they will be stronger.
