Heliums are ultra-lightweight at approx 11 lbs, but the Greenlights are almost as heavy as stock @ around 14-15, I don't know why they call it lightweight, plus they only come in 15".

Just looked on www.konigwheels.com and it says the blatant come in only 17 or 18.

Blatant Opal 17 x 7.0 Opal 18.14 lbs.
Blatant Opal 18 x 7.5 Opal 21.2 lbs.

And here's what the heliums look like on a teg:

16" SSR Competition (anthracite w/ machine lip). Yes, the same one's you see on Realtime's SuperTouring Type R's on Speedvision. 11.3 lbs each, what more can i say??? Well, I drive in NYC all the time and i can't count how many times i hit crater sized potholes... these wheels just don't break, and at just over 11 pounds each, you can't go wrong. I got mine wrapped in Khumo's for $1500 at a local shop. look in my profile for pics. aight

rota circuit 8's are like 12 lbs in 16" config. they're nice wheels too.
i was looking at circuits in bronze also. they have a good deal on groupbuycenter. i currently have 17's and am afraid i won't like it if i downsize. btw, if you have a 18Ib 17" and you go to a 15Ib 16" rim won't your wheel weight be almost the same because you will have to run larger profile tires with 16's wich means more air in the tire and more tire weight? can anyone eplain this to me?

Wow, are they really that light? That'd probably end up being even lighter than the Heliums including wheels... all depending on what size you get etc.

But you can almost get a set for the price of one of those wheels!

The Racing Hart CP8-R were on GroupBuyCenter at one time for $1500 shipped I believe. Wish I had the money
.

Oh and about WheelMax. This girl I know with a Type-R, order some rims from them and they sent her the 4-lugs instead of the 5-lugs. Supposedly the salesman that took her order said that she did not mention that it was a 2000 Type-R and that it was her fault. Her replied was "you never asked me what year it was" and "besides, all Integra Type-R's are 5-lugs regardless of the year". Well, that shows you how much they know. At the end, she still had to send the rims back and pay another $100 for the shipping and handling.

Oh, one more story, not as bad but still. My boy order some Racing Hart M6 w/ either some Nitto or Kumho(forgot which one) tires for his girlfriend's 97 Accord. Well turns out they sent it with some Ventus tires instead. No phone calls, no explanations, just plain sent him the wrong ones. Luckily his girl doesn't care and persuaded him not to call them back and complain.

By the way, how do you quote someone's reply?
