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".

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.

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.

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

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.

The Centerline RPM's are still in production (or should be) I ordered a set for my Volvo a few weeks ago. $1060 for 4 shipped from Wheels America.

I don't know if it's made in 4x108 but the Racing Hart CP-035 is a real nice wheel, although they are about $400 a pop

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

There's no way the ATS's are 12lbs for only $140 a piece. OZ Superleggera's at 17 x 7 are not that light and cost way more.

Exactly my point.

I am weighting (pun intended) to get an answer from him to my question...

If 15's = 13lbs then???


The lightest, cheapest, decent looking 17x7.5's I have found are LM5's at ~17lbs for $130 each.

Anyone have pics of these on our car??? I searched without any luck...

Demon, I would have to say my ATS' weigh in a bit less than that. I can hold one wheel straight out from my body with one hand; honestly they feel about the same weight as a 14 or 15 lb bowling ball. All I had for weighing instruments was a crappy bathroom scale at the time and it registered about 15 lbs. FWIW...

we need to weigh these!!!

My Rotas are 17lbs for 17X7.5, which is pretty descent, and I only paid $120/wheel. . .but, the MINUTE I ruin one, I'm scrwed, since they were custom-drilled on GB. . .so I shall weight, Chknwk, can you weight them for real? wheelweights.net has 'em at 13lbs as Demon mentioned for the 15, so I would surmise that they should weight in like 16lbs. . .

my only problem with comp lites or any rare wheel for that matter is if you bend one, you are f*cked.

let me guess, the comp lite is no longer available.




I worked for them up until about 6 months ago! I might be able to get some. Let me make a few calls!

Hey guys, this might seem a little silly, but howabout posting what's generally considered light, normal, and heavy for wheel sizes? Just as a point of reference for shopping....

What my "educated" guessing tells me:

For 17"s:

Light: Below ~17 lbs
Normal: ~18-22 lbs
Heavy: Above ~23 lbs

Seem around right?
