Budget friendly track wheels not named RPF1

I have $2K for a wheel and tire combo for track use only. Iíd like a set of RE-71RS tires which leaves me with just about $1K for wheels.

I do not like RPF1s, but would like something with similar weight and strength. Was looking at some Apex wheels but theyíre impossible to find.

What other options are there in the same class in terms of performance, weight, and price as the RPF1s?

Basically, I could use something in the $250-300 per wheel range. I know, Iíd love to spend $3K on wheels, but I just donít have it right now.

Look into Konig's flow formed wheels. Seems to fit your criteria and budget.

Thanks!

That what I was thinking. I had a set of Konig Dial-ins in my Miata and never had issues. Iím looking at a set of Konig Ampliform. Theyíre just over 2lbs heavier than the RPF1s which isnít ideal but isnít terrible.

Wondering if anyone has any experience with them.

Size? If I ever wanted an 8 or 7 I’d probably be shopping for Motegi traklites, they seem to be low on 5x100 at the moment though. Kosei K1, 949 6ul and aforementioned konigs fit the bill. Tire racks in house brand skews heavier but is affordable and I think a little more durable then the ultralight stuff, they’d be my first stop for checking out what’s light and in size/budget.

Worth noting, cheap and light will mean they’re not invincible, minor trade off imho as you can still go years without issue.

I currently have the Dekagrams on my BRZ in 17x8. I never weighed them but looked online and they are just about 17lbs. Personally, i really like them and have zero issues with them and the roads around here arent the best and they've held up quite well. I think in terms of sizing options, offsets, weight they are great value.

Good stuff. I was sure I had included my desired size, 17x9, but just noticed I didnít. My mistake.

I have good experiences with 6ULs, but kind of want to see what else I could consider. Iíll look at the Traklites and Kosei K1.

Thanks!

For sure. Iíve been looking. There were a set of Apex wheels I really wanted and weíre within a 60min drive of my house but someone else sniped them before I could. No luck so far otherwise, so Iíll keep looking.

I like the Decagrams. I had a set of Dial-ins. Would recommend them.

currently running superspeed rf06rr and they are light

I've also had good luck with motegi tracklites on a golf and I've run konig flow formed wheels on a few cars sans issue.

Thatís why I asked, pretty sure neither offer 17x9 with 5x100 and the right offset. No TR Motorsport wheels either, just enkei ts-5 on tirerack and maybe some konigs.

A little higher than your budget at $400 each, but I'm running Enkei GTC02's which are pretty lightweight.
