Looking for some nice lightweight black 17x7 rims with a polished lip. So far I’ve only found the Enkei RS7’s (a few people already have the RSV’s so those are out in my book) which weight 17.5lbs and aren't expensive. Any other suggestions?

Do they have to be black with a polished lip? I never really liked black wheels on anything but a black car. But hey they are your wheels on your car. If you want light wheels at a decent price the Kosei K1 TS are 14.1lbs and can be had for $200 each but dont come in black, that I can find anyway.

I would go with anthracite...darker shade of grey, but not gloss black...like Sokool said, if you dont have a black exterior I suggest sticking with something lighter, imo

Rota makes a few and they are quite light. Its hard finding a site that has them in stock though

yeah I considered Rotas but couldn't find anything in a style that I wanted that also met the above requirements.

I have a silver car and I'm considering going with a black and silver theme (I'm considering getting a black spoiler) so yes, black with polished lip is what I'm looking for. I don't think a solid black rim would look as good with the silver (although I've seen black stockers on a black car that looked pretty bad ass IMO) so that's why I figured I'd go with a polished lip.

Yeah I searched and saw your thread and didn't see anything I was interested in except J-so's recommendation. Also I didn't see it in your post, but for my requirements I have to be lighter than stock and still good quality (I race so hense why I was looking at the Enkei's) but figured some of the "wheel gurus" would be able to give me other directions to look. :D

Here's what J-so suggested...

5zigen Fn01r-c - 17x7 with a 48mm offset @ 17lbs...



and here are the Enkei's I was considering...
