Nippon Lightstars weigh 15 pounds and are 150 each(600 for a set)@ www.machiii.net and they even have free shipping!

They look alright, but they weigh so little. My mother said she is gonna get me them for a belated Xmas and early B-Day gift

EDIT: here is the specific link: http://www.machiii.net/wheels/Nippon/LightStar.html

Have a look at Rota Subzeros. I have 16's and they weigh about 14.5 lbs and have the correct offset. I think 17's are about 16 lbs but I don't know about offset. And they are as cheap as wheels get, good quality and very strong.

Wow! That's really light. Where did you find those? I'd like to check them out.

The SSR Competitions are also extremely light...They weigh in at 13.5 lbs. for the Anthracite finish and 13.6 lbs. for the silver. Of course, they also cost about $355 apiece. I use them as autocross wheels (not on a Probe) and can feel the difference. And they look awesome, too.

Advan RG, Racing Hart CP035, or Buddy Club Forged.
Be prepared to pay at least $600 each.

All Buddy Clubs are nice, but only the QF's are forged......only like 12-13 lbs for a 17"

Plus they look better than the others, because the spokes "disappear" into the rim, instead of being flush with the rim

The SSR Competitions are about the same weight & more like $370 or so at Tire Rack. I'll probably get those once finances allow it.

centerline rpm rims are light as hell and i think they would look tight on a probe!
