    Def they are heavy. The P47SC HRE's look awesome and they are ~20, i'm getting a set of those in near future.

    HRE C93's look great too. 19 inch like the p47sc but it's heavier at 22lbs.

    Anything 21lbs and less is pretty good. 22+ starts to be a burden. You will notice right away the difference in steering and acceleration

    Your best bet though bob, is find a wheel you LOVE, your not a speed junky like some of us, so its more important that you get a wheel that makes you turn and do a double-take when walking away from it. You will regret everything else if u sacrifice any amount of cosmetic for weight.

    Your right steve, I am trying to stay with something relatively light, or if I like a real light wheel, even better. The BBS LM-r has always had my eye.....but they are heavy....I paid the money for stg2 mods, I may as well get some lighter wheels so I can enjoy the speed. I'm going to keep wrestling with this, those two wheels sorena posted are sick!

    I'm looking for a light weight wheel, preferably 18 inch that looks good. Honestly I'm leaning towards the volk te37, I know some say it should be on a jdm car but it looks good, isnt terribly expensive, and is light. The offsets on the 335 make choosing a wheel more difficult. The te37 looks great on a m3 bc of the concavity, same with the apex arc8. I'm not going to track this car but I want a good performing, light weight, strong wheel. I have a pretty conservative taste and will get whatever wheel I end up within hyper silver or a silver color. I love the look of BBS Lm's but there real heavy. The HRE's are nice but to expensive. I want a wheel under 21 lbs.

    Well I've narrowed my wheel choice down to CCW LM20's or Advan RS. My goal is to buy a light weight, good looking wheel that will be able to take a beating on our terrible NJ/NY roads. I'm thinking I'm going with 18's bc of those requirements but we'll see, the advan's look great in 19's.

    My car is monaco blue, with silver trim and the OEM silver kidneys. I've thought about blacking out the trim/kidney grills and getting black wheels but I think the OEM silver really makes this color pop and the car looks great with silver colored wheels so I'm keeping it that way....plus everyone goes the "black out" route. The black against my blue just doesn't look right IMO.

    Here is a pic of how my car looks currently....

    and now here is some pics of a beautiful 135 with my same color scheme and similar front bumper/lip setup on ccw's.

    Imo Pros: The CCW is a very strong wheel, lightweight (18 lbs each) and very classy looking.

    Imo Con: the chrome finish, I'm not crazy about the chrome finish look, I like hyper silver much better. CCW can make any finish but I can't find any pics of hyper silver, plus the price goes up pretty steep when u start requesting custom finishes.


    ADVAN RS

    IMO pros: very strong, very light (17-19 lbs depending on size), racing heritage (used in wtcc BMW cars) and decent cost.

    IMO cons: the open wheel look exposes my lack of a bbk ha, I like a mesh looking wheel, not sure I'll be happy with this long term.

    Ok so opinions are welcomed! Thanks
    The CCW's are the most original design there.

    Advan's are boring in comparison.

    Thanks for the responses, I'm going with volk te37's. They will look perfect on my car. I'm getting silver 18 inch wheels, and I'm going to fit 275's on the back. These wheels are under 20lbs and I'll have more grip with the wider/meaty tires.

    Here's a nice pic, these are 19's, mine will be 18's and silver

    I like the look of the CCW wheels much more. Extremely open wheel designs rarely look good in my opinion. The open design may allow for easier cleaning, however it doesnt look like the CCW wheels would be impossible to wash.

    I like the ccw's too, I'm also eying the Morr VS8.2's. In 19's they come in 19x8.5 f and 19x10 r with 275 tires out back. Fronts weigh 19.5 lbs and rears are 23 lbs....the Morrs are made for the bmw's. Hmmmm I dunno

    ^ I hate having options, choosing one among all of them drives me crazy. In these occasions go with the one your heart says.

    Wow, great find! I like that too

    I'm looking at dpe and ISSforged also, the ISSforged fm10r might be my wheel, I just have to see how much they weigh. http://issforged.com/wp/fm-10r/

    In case anyone cares, i made up my mind and I'm going with the new apex EP 7's. They were just released...

    They are light, classy looking, and concave...Pretty much everything I'm looking for
