There are VERY few 17" wheels that weigh less than the stock 16's. I know Volk makes a couple that will fit, but they are VERY expensive. Good luck.

For tires i would reccomend the Yokohama A520's, they are amazing and have no problem handling my brothers Turbo Audi when agressivly driven. I also have them on my car.

I second the OZ Superleggeras. 15.2 pounds in 17" form. They look sweet as well.

Oz P1's.

The Superlaggers have the wrong offset.
