Is there any truth to the rumor I heard that the stock 14" steelies for low-trim Tours weigh substantially less than any of these fancy rims do?

Saw a few people running on these this week at a local AutoX.

http://www.teamdynamicsusa.com/ <- That's the company product database. You can flip through their multiple colors & centercap schemes for each wheel type.

http://www.shoshop.com/guidelog/svt/svtchp6.htm <- Shoshop lists the available Team Dymanics wheels they sell that fit our pattern. Maybe you can find better pricing out there.

Pro Race1 ~$ ??

17x7.5 @ 17.6 lbs. Available in several colors. Saw a bunch of these this weekend @ the track.

Pro Race2 ~$ ??

17x7 @ 15.5 lbs. Made in a few colors. I don't think these fit us either

Pro Comp1 ~$ ??

About 19lbs for 17x7. Don't think they're our pattern tho The Race1's might be a better buy anyways, considering the weight & size.

The Pro Race 1's in 17x7.5" shouldn't even be in the states yet - I know because I've been waiting since February for mine. The reps from Team Dynamics can't even tell my supplier WHICH wheels are in the first shipment which is still in the water.
Needless to say I cancelled my order and am currently trying to get Rotas.

Borbet Type B ~$120 @ www.tirerack.com

16x7.5 @ 19lbs. Not too bad.
