Unfortunately, I believe those are in the light-heavyweight division at about 18-19 lbs.

Wheelmax.com, but I have heard shady things about their business practices before, anyone else heard about their reputation as a Vendor, good or bad?

I have heard good things about WheelMax when I was in the Nissan circle.
I almost jumped on their N1s when they were offering the 17x8,17x9 stagger set for the S14. $1199 with tires!

I had trouble finding accurate offset info on the 5Zigen/Black Racing N1s though. I had very specific requirements due to coilovers. As far as spoke clearance, I am sure that they fit the Z32 brakes on the S14. The Nissan Z32 brakes are almost identical to the Subaru 4 pots.

I can't say if they are available in an 18" WRX friendly offset.
If someone finds out, please let us know.
The wheels are a great deal.

EDIT: Question answered -thanks DonkeyPunch

Consider Rota SDR's 17x7.5" 16.5 lbs

Those Pro N-1's are about 18 lbs.

I'm not so sure the SDRs are that light. If you search under my name you'll find a post of mine from a couple months ago about the weight of those rims. The overwhelming concensus was 18 lbs even. (There's even a pic of a Steel Gray SDR on a scale). I'd still buy them though.

You might want to ponder the Rota SubZero. I think it's around that weight and available in Bronze.

Where can I find the Black Racing Pro N1s in white? Its hard to find places that even have the white N1s, and when I do, their pics and links never work. Importhookup.com says thay have them in white but the pics arent working.
