    Wow, that's super light for a 17" wheel! Curious about the note that says it can't use a center cap on the rear axle?

    Yeah, that would be a no-go for me. The OZ mountune wheels cost a bazillion dollars but so far I haven't seen any that have beat the weight (<14lbs each).

    I have that issue with my Rotas, I could get the rear caps to barely stay on but they never fit right due to the hub being too tight a fit in the wheel center bore.

    Painted the hub centers and dust caps satin black and called it a day.

    When Tirerack clearances a wheel after a mere few months on the market, it begs to question why. As well, Tirerack does not list how the wheels were manufactured. 17x7/14.65 lbs for $139 or $169 is too good to be true.

    Check out the detail of the rim where the spoke meets it.

    I am still hoping that enkei makes the RPF1 in our size...please.

    Until there is an equivalent to that I am going with the Sparco's..1 or so pounds of wheel weight...while important...has never proven to bet that much different in any tests I have seen in Grass Roots Motorsports or other like publications. Wheel width and tire profile seemed to be more important....for instance, pinching a tire that is way to big for a wheel on may not be as good as the contact patch is affected.

    I'm not sure how relevant but I was expecting a wash in fuel economy running 15lbs 15" Sparco Drift winter wheels with a higher rolling resistance of winter tires but my highway mpg actually jumped from mid 35s with the lead stockers to a displayed 38.7! Of course miles are up to 6600 so the car is showing benefits of being broken in...

    Still trying to source something lighter than the 16x7 OZs...

    Rota Slipstreams are 14.2 pounds (6.4 kilos) in 16x7 4x108. I have a set that I am using for my snows.:)

    I deleted my email from Wheeldude but I think the slip only comes in a 40, which is too much for Street Class. 41.15 is the max we can run...
