  • Which 14" rims to buy?

    Its time for me to order new rims.

    Right now i have it down to Konig Incident 75$ each and 15lbs




    or



    the Konig Lightining- 78-80$ each and 12lbs


    Price wise it doesn't matter which i get. I kinda like the incident better (once painted all black), but the lightning are just good looking modern rims. The lightning are lighter tho.

    Or which would you pick? Im want to keep them under 100$ and must be 14" I like the konig because they come in dual bolt pattern 4.5 and 100mm. So in the future if i go with a aspire swap i can still runs these as daily tires and swap them out for some 13" race tires.

            Every 1lb in rotational weight is 10 lbs of sprung weight

            So its like 30lbs of body weight

              Same thing as having some crap in the back! I could live with that. But now the real question

              WHICH DO I GET? just made my mind up. Its lightweight for me.

              wait thats like adding 30 pounds each corner! Yikes

                The Lightinings look much better in my opinion. Just personal taste.

                  14x7 RPF1 Enkei. You can't get much lighter without spending thousands.

                          So i like the idea of the enkei rims. If i wanted to go lightweight 13's what would be my options sub 200$ each? I might get the 14's for daily driving and slowly grab a set of top shelf 13's for track days.

                            13x7 Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 wheels are under 200 a wheel. The biggest problem is that you've got to order them custom made from England and they take like 6 months to get. Here are the ones I had made for Tweak with some 20.5x7 hoosier R35A slicks.
