    I have a set of Enkie 18's I bought in 1998 that I still put on from time to time for show. Still look good...in fact just had them blasted, primed, and painted cobalt blue metallic to match the NBM. Rim + tires=58 lbs

    I would vote towards Bogarts. There quality is VERY high and they are very light. Here is a link to there site.

    I like the FlyStars..... It very funny when people are always asking you how your paper thin looking wheels don't break.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

Show me what you got with size and offset.
    actually, american racing didn't acquire weld racing. there is a parent company that bought both of them. i want to say it was zenith, or something that starts with a z. i talked with the weld rep at PRI last year.

    I don't know the exact weight of either of my wheels, but the chrome Z06 wheels feel heavier than the CCW wheels. No where near 40 lbs each though.

    It is a company called Carlisle Tire & Wheel Company. They are the same company that bought out the rights to Cragar. They own MANY wheel and tire companys now.
