Wheels

Does anyone know where to get some light wheels like 25lb or so without breaking the bank

Well the smaller the wheel the lighter it will be, so maybe downsize.

Only real way to get lighter then is forged wheels. And that's $$$$

I agree. Look at the price of forged wheels. You will easily spend 2g's.

My current wheels weight 28lb a piece. Thinking on foster gates. There 21lb a piece. Saving 28lb in rotational mass. 2k for the set though.. might find cheaper

dont you run the risk of warping the rims if they are too light? i know why you want to shave a few lbs off but sacrificing weight from the rims seems like a bad idea.

^^ The factory 19 x 9 track pack rims and tires are a 60 lb combo per corner ... you can afford to lose some weight off the oem pieces, but yeah, too light (or too cheap) and you can run the risk of damaging a rim.


my 18" x 10" SVE drifts are 24 lbs each
SVE Mustang Drift Wheel - 18X10 Flat Black (05-14)

My street rims are 19 x 9.5 and are 25 lbs each. Hmm ... i cant find a link on Tire rack anymore, but they're the Breyton Engineering GTS-av in hyper silver.

Enkei RPF1 and PF01 are really good options as well while still on some sort of budget
Enkei RPF1 18x10 +38mm 5x114.3 Silver 3798106538SP at RallySportDirect.com

Amazon.com: 18x10.5 Enkei PF01 (Matte Black) Wheels/Rims 5x114.3 (460-8105-6515BK): Automotive

Other than that you start getting real pricey. Vorshlag is a company i like to buy my suspension pieces through (they also have some really nice 1 off brake products) and they actually helped design some lighter options in 18 x 10, but they're a bit more pricey ... if i didnt get my drifts for racing, i would have gone with these

my 18 x 10 drifts in flat black were less than $600 for the set with the discount code you just cant beat that. Hell, even Valerie's 19 x 9.5s in the dark stainless (awesome finish in person) were less than $700.

Why do you need a lighter wheel? What will you be doing that you'll benefit from a lighter wheel?

Less rotating mass.

I'm just going to get an alum. drive shaft. Most likely will make more of a difference then a few lbs on some wheels.

I have to agree. For a DD this really wouldn't be necessary. If youre still using stock wheels, pretty much any aftermarket wheel will be lighter. Even if they are only 10lbs. lighter thats still a lot. For a DD a super light wheel isnt always the way to go. A 25lb wheel is very light and will be expensive. Look for wheels in the 30-35lb range and you'll be fine.

I have had several different sets of wheels on several different cars. Trust me, a 3-5 lb drop per corner is something you will notice. I dropped 4 lbs per corner on my last car and it was night and day. The drive shaft is 20 lbs of rotating mass, but think about 4-5 lbs per corner, that's 16-20 as well.


Lighter wheels help accelerate, but they also help with braking. Think about inertia, objects in motion want to stay in motion, meaning it takes more effort to slow a large, heavy wheel.

I don't even see 17" Drifts anywhere? My only contingencies there would be:
1. Will it clear, at the very least, GT Brakes? I know they wont clear brembos because the 18" are a tight fit.
2. Do they come in 17 x 10?


I can spin the (275, street) tires on a hard 1-2 and chirp them on a hard 2-3 in my GFs car and she only has 3.55, intake, and tune. I wouldn't recommend anything less than 10" as an "upgrade," in regards to actually getting a good tire on the car.

they make 17" sve's? I know ive seen the 18's but I don't remember 17"


unless you have big fat tires on them I just think 17's look way too small.

I thought they did. Googled and I can't find it. I may be thinking of the AMR's in 17's. They look very similar to me may have gotten them confused

I set up a thread in the wheels/tires section a while back to get people to post up weights of their set-up. Would be great if people posted up to it.

Let me find it.

I'm looking at these tires and these rims now with both of them they give me a smaller overall diameter and I'll drop 44lbs of rotational mass. There just 2k lol. I'll be going with 18 by 9/10 and I'm thinking a 255/40 and 275/40
