    Default Lightest 14" wheels that will clear AD22VF NX2000 Brakes?

    Ok guys I need your help.

    I need the lightest 14" wheels out there. Im thinking of swapping over the RPF1 from my B14 to my NX2000 once I register it on Monday. But Im trying to avoid that. So Im thinking of getting 14" wheels or another set of RPF1s.

    I searched but I only found discontinued wheels. I dont care about the color of the wheels, just as long as they are light I will be happy.

    Criteria....

    Fit over AD22VF calipers
    Max $1500 -$1700 for a set
    8 (or less) to 9lbs
    4x100
    35-41 offset
    6" - 7" wide
    1991 P.O.S. NX2000 Black.... No engine. Space Killer. xD

    I suppose NX wheels aren't that light? You'd be better off with 15s because tires are becoming more expensive for 14s than they are for 15s. Just my .02 though.

    Have you checked tire rack or googled to see if you get a hit on a website that sells 14s?

    Yeah I have. I find 11 pounders, 12 lb wheels. I might go with 15" if I cant find an uber light 14" wheel.

    yup, they also make 6 lug TE37's for off road racing (not ralley, more like off road touring cars used in the dakar) its such a simple and extremely strong design.

    i have konig heliums, they are under 11 pounds if im not mistaken and measure 6.5 x 15

    got mine for 90 a peice a while back off buyrimstoday or tirerack, one of those discount tire direct maybe

    i bet you can fit a lot more rims if you grind down the caliper a bit like you have to do with the stock se-r wheels, though most sites probebly dont list the inner dia of there rims so its hard to say. im with everyone else just make it easier and get 15s

    have fun boring them out though... mazda hub centers are only 53mm. you gotta bore em out to 60mm to fit a Nissan hub. and unless you pay a machinist to do it properly, balancing will be a bit of a joke.

    I found a site that has them for sale. 550+ for any ONE wheel. That's probably be the smallest size and black or brownish color that comes standard.

    ok I have been searching. And the miata boys have had trouble fitting slightly larger brakes under certain 14" wheels. Would a different offset help me clear the AD22VF calipers? Say for example a 0 offset instead of a +35 offset? I've found the TE37 gravels in a 14x7 4x100. Weighing at 9.1lbs. There are also the regular TE37 at +35mm.

    I searched on the watanabes and the lightest they come in is 9.5 lbs and IIRC they come in 4x114. For that price and weight I'd stick to 15x7 rpf1s at 9.5lbs and save money.

    They have the Wantanabes in that size with 4x100, but for the price I'd rather have 2 rpf1s for the price of 1 Eight Spoke.

    Do the TE37 gravels look different?

    Kosei K1 TS 14x6 9.3 pounds $119 each at Tire Rack

    These are sized to fit on the NX2000, so they should work for NX brakes.

    go with those. konig heliums are good wheels for a street car, but if you're building a track car (which is why i think you want a stock sized lighter wheel for classing) helium's have a tendancy to crack. the K1's are good wheels.

    also Gram lights. they're a Rays company (Volk) and they specialize in strong, very lightweight wheels. they are also very expensive, like any rays wheel.
