I guess us Canadians have a fetish for rims or something ;) . But regardless, here are my new rims Katana Passions 18", riding on 225-40RZ-18 Wanli's (don't know much about the tire brand).

With these new rims the car seems to handle a lot better, specially when changing gears (before it would sometimes pull to one side with changes at high rpms), seems more stable in turns too. But this of couse could just be because I've been riding on winter tires for the last 4 months :( . I could still spin the wheels off the start and in between 1st and 2nd, so I don't think there is much torque loss.

As for weight, I measured the following:

stock dunlop tires 23.6 lb
stock rims with winter tires (dunlop graspics) 44.2 lb
Katana's 23.4 lb

I'm guessing the stock rims are around 20 lb, 3 lb difference is not bad.

those rims are awsome. what did something like that run you? I was also thinking about getting some new rims since it's summer and my factory rims already have pits from the rock salt and what-not.

they ran me $325 CND each, I'm not sure if I got a good deal or not, but all I know is my winter tires are finally off :D

no, nothing painted yet. You meant the calipers right, cause I don't think you can get the rotors painted?? BTW cute baby :p
