lightweight rims?

I am trying to find some lightweight rims, the lightest I have found so far are 18lbs at 300$ from OZ. Does anyone know of any lighter rims in our bolt patter?

If I get used to envying others those parts of myself that I am proud of will recede from me.

What size?

17x7 - OZ's at 13.8 lbs 8 colors, $320+ each plus shipping.

Centerline at 15-17 lbs depending on style, polished or chrome only but in 6 styles, can get direct for under $1100 shipped for 4.

Motegi doesn't offer the Trak Lites for us yet, but the SP5's (I just bought them) are a couple lbs lighter than stock (18.5 IIRC) and on ebay you can get 4 for under $500 shipped!

17x8's - OZ is pretty much it, 16.8 lbs.

18's - OX and Centerline again. Motegi's aren't light at this size, but the SP5 18's weigh about the same as the stock 17x7, so still okay.

That's all I've found... Better than 1-2 years ago, when there was one and that wasn't real available (Centerline), lol.

I am looking for stock size (I thought was 17x7.5" but I guess it is who you ask) What OZ is 13lbs? I don't care much about looks as these are race only rims.

I'm so not joining ANOTHER car board (I've already lost count) to follow that link, lol. What is it? We've tried with numerous manufacturers, group buys, all kinds of stuff. All failed - even when their requested numbers were met.

Has anyone even looked at racelinewheels.com? They have 17s in the 17 lb range also. Great styles too. The type 126 is $120 each and weighs 17 lbs.

They were the magnesium ones spike posted about like 6 months ago. iirc you might have called the place and they said they may have plans or something.

The magnesium ones were from Raceline, and they didn't happen, couldn't get past DOT reg's at that weight/price. It's sorta kinda still in the works, but waaaaaay back on a distant burner.

The type 126's aren't readily available in 5x110 anymore - we didn 't discover them in time, lol. By the time anyone figured out they made a 16-18 lb rim to fit our cars, they'd cleared them out for good 'cuz they didn't sell. I've been in contact with the guys at Raceline numerous times - they're building the badass custom wheels for the fully custom '68 DeVille my partner and I have going right now. If could get a bunch of people together I'm pretty sure I could get them to do a run for us...

Thing is, they'd be just barely under the price of the Centerlines, which are readily avialble under $1100 for a set of four, and are 15-16 lbs.

Those would do: Raceline Wheels - Type 126 Mirror Black

The type 195 I like a lot! (would delete the red) Raceline Wheels - *New Type 195

I could actually live with almost 1/2 the wheels on this page: Raceline Wheels - Performance

Where do you find the weight and prices ? I don't see them.

I just emailed them. Jason Divis wrote me back. I've even called and spoke with Jason. I really like the 195 also. Wasn't sure how good it would look on a Blue RL.
