any ideas?

they're 19", btw
The offset and width are important. We haven't seen enough fitments for this car yet to sort out the best combo. The tires Mguy mentions will be a little smaller OD than stock; the fronts at least would want to be 35 aspect ratio. I may go 9"/10" monoforged wheels with 265/35 & 295/30. Need to figure out the offset issue first.

30 lbs is pretty heavy for a 9.5" forged 19. I wonder if that's rumor or substantiated. Tomorrow I may weigh the assemblies; since Michelin lists the tire weights (24# F & 25# rear), I can caculate the wheel weight, at least to the closest pound.
