If you're planning on saving weight!
get the 16'' and go for a 'race style' (like me grin)

Because, those aren't for show!!! (then you should get some 18'' with a polished lip!)
But I like ehm!!! thumbsup

i like the rota subzero's more. the rota's are light too, and have a similar style to those, but are only 5 split spokes, instead of 6

if your worried about the weight, my adr 17" demonyas only weighed about 14 a piece, you just have to look around, there are plenty of light rim choices. The downside to mine is that the nitto tires outweighted the normal tires by a few pounds, but they definetly hold a lot better, i think they were close to 18 pds a piece.

yeah, i like these brands but they're too expensive for my taste and they seem to be the typical "high Performance & expensive" wheels to go with. well, it'll be a year or so before i get new wheels (gonna try to bullet proof my suspension, transmission and engine 1st) so new wheel styles will be available by then.
