Well, I wrote to Speedy Wheels, Inc. This is what they had to say:

Quote:

Hi, Eric,

Yes, our L6 in 17" , L7 in 18" and Hi-Speedy 17" are all make 4-108 pattern.

Thanks,
Betty





Now, the English is bad, but from what I gather they make:
<- Lite 6 (silver, charcoal, white)
<- Lite 7 (silver, charcoal, white)
and
<- Hi-Speed Racing (silver, black, gold, white)
in 4x108. I'm requesting more information, such as wheel weights, ASAP.

The Konig Traffik 17" wheel weighs in at 15.9 lbs. Only DubKatz and I have these wheels as far as I know, but there are plenty of pics floating around if interested.

HOLY SHNOZZLEBERRIES! I paid full price for those a year and a half ago, thats' like an extra $100+, I could have bought a spare! It looks like they are only available in white while they last, good thing that's what I have, I might just order a few extra. Nice find. At that price it would be worth it to buy them then get them powdercoated whichever color you like.....

BTW, this is what they look like on the car.

I like the Konigs. When I bought my wheels I looked at the other Contours on the site. Enkei RS5's and the Konig Tantrums were the only ones I liked. I bought 17" Enkei RS5's from whalentire.com. Hope to see you at TY park on Sat.

I think if I remember right, they're only 12lbs! Did you have the bronze custome done, 'coz last time I looked they didn't have that color, only silver and gunmetal.

No custom colors, I just ordered what was on the DiscountTireDirect website.

In what size? 14"???

They list the 15x7 ATS Competition Lite at 13.0 lbs.

The 17x7.5 would have to be a tad heavier don't you think???


That 12lb comment peaked my interest since I've been looking for 17's so I did some digging. The only weight I could find was for their 15x7 rims.
