They both make subzeros. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/IMG]
Konig Sub Zeros
Rota SubZeros
I think the rotas are lighter though.

The Konigs are what I'm putting on my ride...Gonna wrap them in some Khumo Ecsta Supras and call it a day. I think they'll look tight, and they don't weigh to much either. Can't wait.

Volk TE-37 is the best...one of my friends and his dad are pro. race drivers (on speedvision) they showed me one 16" rim that is so light that i can lift it up with my FINGER but they cost $600 each

I dont quite think that 23.5 lbs qualifies as light in the world of wheels....

Don't know about the konigs, but I believe 17x7.5 volk te-37's weigh in at only 15lb. That is damn light for a set of 17's... Hence that is why they are VERY expensive...

I wouldnt spend that much for rims. Yeah volks are nice but they cost too much , plus are cars are not the fastest on the block so why waste that much money for leight rims?. I think the 5 zigen rims are nice rims are they are a good price, they only weight a lbs an inch.

later,
John

The Velox VX-8 17*7 weight 19 lbs and 18*7.5 is 21 lbs, this is a low pressure alloy cast wheel. Also, the Volk Racing TE-37 17" actual weight is 8 lbs because it is forged construction wheel. They are both JDM.
Velox wheels are on sale at groupbuycenter.
17" $585 shipped
18" $725 shipped
