I'm having a hard time finding lightweight and decent looking 5x108 17x7.5 or 17x8 wheels. Do you guys have any suggestions? I'm looking for stuff <= 18lbs.

I took a look at the wheel weights over on http://www.measurespeed.com/.

The top 10 lightest wheels of 17x8 size, with weights from 12.9-14.7 lbs are:
'Dymag Motorsport'
'RAC Monolites RS110'
'Buddy Club P1 Racing QF'
'Racing Hart CP-035R'
'Toybox48 Hethel'
'Stern Aguzze-S07R'
'SSR Type-C (called Competitions in the US)'
'Motegi Racing Trak Lite 2'
'Racing Sparco LE'
'5Zigen Beckets FN-01R'

The top 10 lightest wheels of 17x7.5 size, with weights from 9.5-13.8 lbs are:
'AG Forged SMK Monoblock AG3-SMK26'
'TRM (Tire Rack Motorsports) F1'
'Buddy Club P1 Racing QF'
'Final Speed Forged'
'Racing Hart CP-035R'
'SSR Type-C (called Competitions in the US)'
'J''s Racing PR 6'
'OZ Forgiata'
'Starform Real Racing Model II'
'Volk CE28N'

The top 10 lightest wheels of 17x7 size, with weights from 11.5-13.7 lbs are:
'Velox PG-Rev10'
'Centerline Impulse'
'Velox PG-Rev5'
'Velox PG-5s'
'Joustmeister'
'Modex Ks-Ce'
'6061 A5LW'
'Centerline RPM'
'Racing Sparco Viper R (Japan Only)'
'Rozest MF-02'

After seeing these numbers, I think I now want something in the <= 15 pound range. Finding wheels with a 5x108 bolt pattern seems to be the hardest part though. Does anyone know how expensive it would be to get wheels redrilled to a 5x108 bolt pattern what bolt patterns would be compatible with redrilling?

can you make a list of the lightest wheels that ARE 5x108. i prefer not redrilling if possible. i rather pay more for them to drill a blank.

I'm beginning to think Forgestars are the best option... I don't want something that's butt ugly.

If you can find me a site that lists wheel weights and bolt patterns, I can write some code to parse the data and find the lowest weight wheels. The problem is that I haven't found such a site yet.
