The Tirerack ad in Grassroots Motorsports gives measured weights for some lightweight wheels.

Kosei K1-Racing wheels seem to be pretty popular. They are relatively inexpensive.

15x8s weigh 13.8-14.5 lbs. and are $174
17x7.5s weigh 16-16.5 and are $199

BBS RKs are pretty light too but a bit more expensive.

SSR Comps are really light but also kind of expensive (from $289 for 15x6 up to $409 for 17x9.5)

15x7.5 weighs 10.9-11.3 lbs.
16x7 weighs 11.3-11.9 lbs.
17x8 weighs 14.2-14.8 lbs.

I'm not sure what exact fitments these come in but I have seen all of them on E30 M3s.


I am looking into getting some lightweight wheels.... and i was wondering if anyone knew of any good ones, that aren't very expensive.

thanx in advance
