What rims do you think are the best performing rims out there. I'm not too dependant on looks but they can' t look like fecal matter. I like to drag race so acceleration is important.

preformance rims? I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you mean light weight. Try Tirerack.com I think they can sort rims by weight

the slipstreams are great from what I hear. If you want a nicer looking wheel, the OZ superlegga (sp?) are also lightweight and great looking

what do you guys think about the 15" OZ Ultraleggera. They are only 12LBS! Are there any other rims lighter than that? Where do you guys buy your rims from?

you want the best rims and lightest rims go with team dynamics.i have a set on my car ...each rims is 20 pounds lighter than stock rims and omg first gear tachs out quick.be careful though the light rims have a tendacy to jerk the steering wheel out of my hand when power shifting.good luck!

My OZ Superlegerras do the same thing-so much lighter than stock-I feel the lower momentum generated by lighter rims harder to handle because I was not used to it.
Here is a link to some wheel weights by name and size and weight. The Team Dynamics and OZs are nice and light!
