Lightweight G-Stock Legal Wheel?

What wheel is the best choice? I want to stay in SCCA G-Stock (with snorkle this year) and the SVT stock wheel is 17x7 49mm offset. Most wheels I see are 42mm offset and they are outside of the +/- .025 from standard.

I was looking at the Kazera KZR 19.6 lbs and 45mm offset at TireRack. Anyone know of any others I should check out?

Thanks,

May want to check with Rota, they make a few focus specific wheels that are pretty light. I'm unsure though of the offest.

My wheels are fairly light Bill at 16.5 pounds each. Not the easiest to find though. The Kazeras you mention are pretty popular for a bargain light wheel for our cars too.

OZ Superleggaras are on fire sale at Tire Rack right now. 15.2lbs, super-strong, and just $150 or so a piece.

"Any type wheel may be used provided it complies with the
following: it is the same width and diameter as standard, and 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.
The resultant change in track dimensions is allowed."

It's +/- 0.25 inches from the original offset, which is

0.25 in (2.54cm/ 1 in) * (10 mm/ 1 cm) = 6.35 mm

Sadly, that does make +42mm just barely illegal - ridiculously close, how lame. I'd verify from another source if that stock offset is right. You might call SVT and ask them to double check. The Superleggeras would be a great wheel - very good looking on black. I'd also look into the Rotas as suggested; I think they run closer original offsets.

Edit: I just called SVT and found out that the stock offset is 49.26mm. The Team Dynamics would definitely be within the legal limits. Sorry, Bill. I was hoping that could open up more options for you.

The Kazera KZ-Vs are 17.5lbs each with a +45mm offset at $129 and up (depending on the color).

42mm offset though...
There's those pesky rules to deal with again.
