Has anyone got any suggestions for some lightweight wheels for the RS? I do function over form always, and ive never been into silly wheels but i wouldnt mind some new ones. They have to be very lightweight, availible in 15" or 16" and not cost the earth. It be cool if they looked good too and suited the car.

Cheers smile

A lightweight wheel can be from 5kg for a 15inch wheel, on top of wheels weight you have the tyre weight. We have Ats Dtc wheels in 15inch size they weigh 5.7kg (i wasn't bothered about weight just liked the look of these wheels)

Oh and these wheels with tyre weigh 18kg
