    A new set of wheels are in the works. Tires still need to be determined.

    Did you choose your wheels yet or did I just totally miss that in this thread?

    PS is there an Auto X in Philly soon? I'm headed to Southern NJ and need to do something fun for a day... /hijack

    I have a set of Silver 17x8 Enkei RPF1 wheels on the way.

    Philly Region doesn't have anything coming up in the immediate future. However, karting at Mid Atlantic GP is wicked fun.

    I just got an email notifying me of the wheels shipping; they will be here next Wednesday. Just in time for winter.

    The RC-T4 Wheel is the replacement for the ES-Tarmac, however it weights in closer to 17lbs than the old tarmac which was a light wheel.
    That was the info that I got from Rallispec.

    I kind of have a thing for this wheel if I cannot find 1500 bucks or some ES-Tarmacs


    According to Wheelweights.net this wheel weighs in around 15.6 for the 17x7 So a tad more for the 8" wheel....

    Though the Forged WedsSport TC105N posted above are VERY nice and weigh in around 14.9lbs.... DROOL!

    I was not expecting them so soon. Aside for the slightly lighter weight than the other wheels in the start of this thread I think they are the best looking. I have not seen forged wheels for that semi-reasonable price.

    I think it's a very, very strong wheel (as all of the competition Enkeis are)- little heavier than the Tarmac it replaces, I've seen the weight posted between 16 and 17lbs, in a 17x8 isn't exactly heavy IMO

    certainly a good looking wheel

    Big Sky, I was told by rallispec that the wheel weights were higher than the ES Tarmac by 2 lbs. Sooo that's right around 16lbs. not bad when you think about it.

    Though the WedsSport TC105N is looking mighty good for the sub $400 price range...
    heck I spent 350 per wheel on my firebird when the American Racing Torque Thurst II 17x8 Wheels first came out... And they were 22lbs!

    I wouldn't be suprised if Dave didn't have a good scale at his shop- you might convince him to throw one on to end the speculation

    I'll shoot him an email again... but the thing that I keep coming back to is for about 150 bucks more total I could have a forged 14~ lbs wheel that is forged...

    I hear ya- don't forget the Motegi's I linked above either- $1000 is too shabby for sub 15 lb 17x8 wheels
