Lightweight racing wheel roundup
#603621 - 05/01/04 01:32 AM

So, I'm trying to compile a list of the lightest racing rims I can find for my SVT. I was looking for some suggestions or additions to my list. Maybe other people can use this list for future reference. I'm focusing on 17"s myself. Right now, here's the ones I remember off the top of my head:

Kosei K1 Racing ??

According to Tirerack.com this wheel doesn't fit the SVT, but I'm sure I had seen it listed as a good fit somewhere before, am I right?

OZ Superleggera ~$260 @ http://www.skperformance.com/WHEELS/OZ_RACING.htm


SSR Competition ??

17x7.5. The other SSR rims are relatively light also, right?

ATS Competition Lite ~$150 @ www.discounttiredirect.com


Rota SDR ~150 @ www.zxtuner.com

17x7.5

Rota Subzero ~$150 @ www.zxtuner.com

17x7.5

Rota Attack ~$140 @ http://revolutionsmotorsports.com/en-us/dept_59.html

There was a gb in the works for these but it fell through. That site says they have them in 4x108. They're slightly lighter than the Subzero's IIRC. 17x7.5

Any others that I should mention?

Centerline.

Volk makes the TE37 in our bolt pattern (last I checked a while ago).

HA! A TE 37 in 17" will run around 450 per wheel. Yes. Per wheel.


FYI, most places will not show prices on Volks. It's in the agreement with Volk to not advertise prices. That's why you'll always see "Call for prices".

Can anybody get info on those K1 Racing rims? Someone on this board was using them, weren't they?

They used to make the Kosei K1 for our cars but sometime last year (spring or summer maybe?) they put them on clearance and sold out the 4x108 bolt pattern. Actually, I just checked out the Kosei web page and I don't think those wheels are made anymore.

Edit: looking through some old posts, it looks like SVTFern, RogerB, and mcgainer all have those wheels (or did)

Yep...that's SVT Fern. He's running Kuhmo Victor Racers on them and if I'm not mistaken he got one of the last sets Tire Rack had.
