lightweight wheels

Can anyone reccomend a set of lightweight wheels for my 08 gd3 that wont break the bank? ROTAS maybe? I heard low weight rolling stock is one of the most cost effective mods for the gd3.

Not off the top of my head but there have been tons of threads on it.

Just google "stock wheel weight fit sport" or something along those lines

Maybe include Fitfreak

I would go with team dynamics just for the simple fact that they come in so many offsets. Not really that light though.

Nothing wrong with 13 lbs/wheel.

The only place light wheels make a difference is on the butt dyno. On a track there is no difference in times.

Mugen RnR's, ~9lbs apiece -- but they're a bit hard to find.

Rota Slipstreams are around 12 lb apiece at 15" I think?

I run SSR Type Ms now, 11 lb each at 15x6.5.
