A few people have Racelands which are about $550 shipped and seem to like them. They have mixed reviews and receive a lot of hate from the guys with $4000 wheels, who are also the people who have never used a Raceland product. They have a great warranty that can't be beat.

Edit: Check the 2.5i thread in the members gallery! A user with Racelands posted a photo and I asked him about his thoughts as he's been using them for some time now. Just waiting for a reply.
Thanks for the reply Digital, it's not my next purchase till late Spring. Just want to figure out if I want to go with shocks and struts or coil overs.

The shock/strut combo's out there have awesome reviews! A few people will probably chime in about their set ups

Black is a special edition color but would look good on there!

I know I've posted this a few times but here is how it looks in the fender. 18x8 +45 235/40r18

Silver-more oem looking, kinda stealth look but you can actually see these
Black /gold- more sporty, more of a personal preference on these two but definitely good choices for the spark silver.

Ohh, you won't find that size in a special color because most people want oversized wheels, good luck!

Lol I really wanted super lightweight wheels too but unless your really tracking your car or putting your suby on a diet, you won't notice a difference. The stock premium wheels are only like 20.x lbs Also keep in mind the rpf01's are a track wheel so they are technically more likely to bend break. Although, i havent heard to many people bending/breaking them.- any insight dillon? Regardless, the rpf1's are pretty bada$$ hah.

Lighter wheels are one of the best things you can do for weight on a car. Less rotational mass. 5lb per wheel is huge in terms of the benefits.

Exactly! In his case it'll be 4lbs each. You probably won't notice a difference in acceleration, although when I raced my buddies OBS I beat him by a car length every time. (hatch 3" exhaust/sedan 2.5" exhaust, both 4 speed, ~150 yard races) I noticed the difference in stopping power though! Felt like I had brand new brakes on the car after putting lightweight wheels on.

The black look sweet in that pic because of the huge yellow calipers. Might not look as good on stock brake system.

I completely agree! I was just trying to give the guy a little insight that's all. Btw it would be 4.x lbs

Also silver/ gold for the wheel color choice.
