28lbs each for 18's!?!? They look great, and I know that an eighteen inch wheel isn't going to be light, but that is substantially heavier than I had anticipated. I an wanting to keep it in the 20-22lb range.

My 17 inch motegi's are 23lbs apiece. Motegi's wheels are just plain heavy. Konig makes the Tantrum which is exactly the same wheel. The MR-7 is the knock off of the Tantrum.

Well hell...I don't care who makes my wheel, as long as it looks good, is decently light, and affordable. Why aren't volks just a little cheaper.....damnit.

Ok...checked out the rota site. I found one I like; an apparent knock off of the volk TE37, but it only comes in a 15. Strange. Here they are:

where can I get some rota grid wheels? I've looked around and can't find a place that sells em. I read on another site that they're in 15 and 16 inch. I could do 16. I'd prefer 17, but oh well.

The grids were actually discontinued a long time ago, they got brought back but only for honda's by special request.

Aww, that stinks. Volk TE37s look so good on gvr4s, but there's no way I'm paying that much.

I have the 17" MR-7s and well they are like stated before, so friggin heavy. I have been looking around for some light 17s, from 12lbs to 16lbs. Well the 12 pounders were like $300 and something per rim.
