Yeah, I love HRE.

Here's one from Falken. Listed at http://www.wheeldiscount.com

Falken Hanabi (Low Pressure Cast) ~$180

17x7 @ ?lbs. Falken's website says its a low-pressure cast lightweight wheel, but doesn't quote the weights. Available in bronze & other colors.

Found a company called Speedy Wheels advertising light weights, but I think they're mostly 4x100's.

Thanks for the info and I wonder if the wheels are actually 8" instead of the 7.5" thats listed on the rim itself, I've heard the FSVT wheels are wider than they're listed too

I really like the Konig Holes, especially with that gunmetal & polished lip. Too bad they're only 17x7.
