You guys are right. The four K-1s I got had to be shipped from two different Tire Rack locations in order for me to get the four. They even staggered the shipping dates for me so that they would arrive at Gingerman at the same time so that I could put them on when I got there from Toronto. They were 17 x 7.5 and I run Victoracer 225 45 17. from what I remember they were a closeout deal.

The lightest non-custom offering's in our bolt pattern are the Centerline RPM(13.5 lbs, yet I've heard lighter when weighed in person), and the Weld Racelite RS-11.7 lbs.

Both wheels are in the $275-$350 range for a 17"....

I've had a shipment of 17x7.5" wheels 'in the water' since January. They weigh 18lbs a piece. I guess that's not TOO bad.

Ooops, forgot to say what brand. I ordered Team Dynamics - if everything goes right I'll be the only person in North America with them on my car. For at least a week anyway...

I have the Centerline Impulses and I weighed them at 12.5lbs per wheel. Those are the lighest that I know of. I got mine used, so I don't know what they run new, but probably $300-$350 per wheel.

These them? The Centerline site doesn't list the Impulses anymore, but they have a similar rim called the Storm.

Centerline Storm


ps you can see the impulse rims over at www.ctamotorsports.com under the project SVT section

What model?

Doesn't Dion have Team Dynamics on his ride?

Yup, those are the ones I have. For some reason they re-named them this year. Chris Wong at CTA Motorsports had them on his project car for a while, but had problems with the balance. Luckily, I have not had any of the issues he had.

The only Kosei K-1s that Tire Rack has are in a 4x100 bolt pattern. But they do have blanks that they can custom drill -- for a price.

I'd go for the ATS Comp Lites.
