you also have to think about what class you want to run in. If you are currently in the stock class and want to remain there then the rim size must remain stock, and you can run as wide of tires as you can squeeze on the stock rims, and you can run any type of tire . if your in ST class the you can have any rim diameter you want but the width can't exceed 7.5", and your tires must have 140 tread wear or higher and no wider than a 225. i think you get the picture, basically find what class your running in or want to be running in based on current or future modifications and find out the regulations on tires and wheels. My suggestion if you only have 400 to play with is to just buy some good tires, a decent set of tires in 15" will run 400-500, and you get a lot more for your money with tires than you do rims. keep your eye out in the B-S-Tor on craigslist for some cheap stock rims. for the price of a decent set of light rims you can do alot of other modifications that will help a lot more than some light wheels
