Can't decide on a lightweight 19" wheel

I am having trouble finding a wheel I like. I want a 19 at 20 pounds and under with a lip. F110's are out as they don't make them and the Sport Technic Mono 10p superlite was discontinued.

360 Forged told me they have a race prep package which lowers the weight of their wheels but the range they gave me was 19-23. If I knew they were going to be 19 pounds I would order but a 4 pound spread is a bit large. I would not want to order and then find out they were 23 pounds.

So what options do I have? There is not much out there in this size and weight range with a lip. No stepped lips please, they look too small.

Pretty much all of the Volks available for the M3 will be right around 19 to 20 pounds being 1 piece forged. I am going with the RE30s in 19x9 +15 and 19x10 +15. They will have a decent lip.

Great suggestion, I do like the silver ones, the front is 20.8 pounds. Not bad, definitely one to consider.

Stunning but same weight as stock. If changing I might as well get something lighter.

First off, he wanted a lip.

And second, he wanted 19's.

Nice affordable light weight 18 inch choice, though.

Yes good looking wheels. But he wants something around 20lbs.

Like those a lot too.

Tirerack also sells them. Not sure why they don't come up as a choice for the M3 on their site. The front wheel offset is only different by 3mm, same rear offset. Vividracing.com also sells both the RS-GT and RG-R.

RS-GT
19x8.5 offset 35mm
19x10 offset 25mm

RG-R
19x8.5 offset 32mm
19x10 offset 25mm

I will e-mail vivid, thanks.

Anything that looks like a 360 Split Seven ( basically straight spokes) or an F110 that is light?

How about the new 360 forged "sportline" wheels? The mesh eight looks really good. Did you ask about their wheel weights?

There is also Forgeline, but I am not sure on the wheel weights.

I asked but they gave me the general 19-23 pound weight. I want to know exactly before I put up 4,000 dollars. I do agree with you, those wheels are gorgeous.
