Stock class wheels

To those of you who are running wheels other then stock in the stock class, What did you decide to go with and did you notice any benefit of a slightly lighter wheel? Im contemplating getting a set when i kill my tires and figured i would do some research on options first.

Thanks!

Seems the 15x6" "Wagon" wheels are about as light as anything in the aftermarket w/o getting uber expensive; 6" wide wheels are kind of rare in the aftermarket unless you get into things like Panasport etc.

^^^Agreed with all the above.
The 15X6 stocker comes in at 15.6lbs which is pretty light for the price.

In addition, there's that offset rule that's hard to meet with aftermarket wheels:
Quote:
as installed (including wheel spacers if applicable) it does not have an offset more than +/- 0.25 inch from a standard wheel for the car.
^^^Standard offset is 52.5mm.
