Thanks for the bump. I am waiting for more details on the Enkei NT03-RR but will probably pick up as set of Konig Hypergram in gunmetal. I need get unload some other wheels before I add anymore to the collection.

What is your setup? pics? I'm still deciding 245 or 255 and if my low skill level should jump to a 200tw tire. Or just go 225/45 to retain some feel.

Still looking. I really like avid1 av20 style but they run out of 5x100, and bremmer kraft br10 but tirerack rip me of on shipping cost. I guess i will end with konig oversteer, i want concave wheels like xxr. And for fitment, i would like to stick oem

As an update to this, Konig has just released a new wheel for 2017 that would fit perfect within the lightweight, low cost 17x9 options.

The Konig Ultraform are available in 17x9 +40 with our 5x100 bolt pattern, weighing in at only 17.85lbs... They are currently 170.10 per wheel on CarID. Can't find them in Canada yet.

They look pretty too, available in grey or gold.

When its time to throw some new wheels on the new BRZ, these are the front-runners for me, without a doubt.

I didn't read through all the posts so excuse me if I've missed something. I came on to say that lightness is fine for some aspects of braking, etc however stiffness is a huge factor in lap times if tracking is your thing. Light but lacking stiffness is a false sense of security when purchacing wheels.

If you want to get rid of the low cost requirement, go with the Volk CE28RT Black Edition like I did, 15.6 lbs!!!

NT03-RR on Tire Rack now ($495 each for 17x9), but no weights. What the hell.

NT03-M's are about 20lbs in a 17x9.5, so these are probably going to be right up there.
