Default Wheels for my Neon

I'm gonna be saving up for wheels and tires for my car, and I'm not really sure what I want to get. I want them to be lightweight though.

I was thinking of going with 15" Rota's like these.

Here's a couple of pics, so maybe it will help some.

Very nice!

You might want to compress that image though, they are 1.5MB each

Yeah, just save it as jpg instead of png.

Those look pretty cool!

Here, I'll do it for you. Just replace the ones up top with these, both about 150kB:

Slips are ok, I just don't know how they would look on that...
Here's my 2 cents on rims. If you're getting rims to just cruise on, don't worry too much about weight. I have 17's for show and kept my old 16's for go. Planning on putting some Azenis on the old wheels for autocross. The ASA EM9 would look hot.
$140 for a 17x7 from Tire Rack, and they actually aren't too horribly heavy.


Just a suggestion. I am a big fan of that style, so I may be biased, but anyway if you go to tirerack you can see them on your car in a side profile, it's kinda nice. That's BBS style for a quarter of the price.
