Anyone tell me what the lightest 15x7 or 16x7 wheel would be?

I say the best bang for buck in 15x7 and 16x7 would be the Advanti Storm S1 wheels.

They weight about 10 pounds at 15x7.

Those are beauties. And 10 lbs each! This may seem like a silly question - I really know nothing about aftermarket wheels - but is there a horsepower limit associated with this type of wheel?

Nope, I don't believe so. Unless you're making more than 250 horsepower I would worry about get wider wheels.

“M” Style wheels...

Not mine, but my cousin’s wheels on my car. Wanted to see how they look. These are M Style Wheels, 15X8.25”, offset 20. Tires are 195/45 R15. The wheels I’m after are 16X8, offset 25, so I’m glad they won’t poke as much as these.

Good looking wheels. I agree, I'm not a big fan of stretched tires. What tires spec are you planning on running? I just picked up 205/50R16 Firehawk Indy 500s and they'll be on a 6.5" wheel. I expect they'd look better on your 8" wheels. I have the same tires on my car now and they don't bulge out at all, but I do have wee bit of curb protection. Plus the FireHawks have a bit of rim protector built in.

Where did you score the Vitz RS tail lights, or did they come on the car? I so want a set of those, but can't justify $600.00, which is what it would cost me to get a set to Canada.

I was actually planning on going 195/50 R16.
I’ve seen 195 on 8” wide wheels, and only has a slight stretch.

It’s good to see what 195 looks like on 8.25”. And I’m happy to share in case others are wondering.

The taillights I found for sale here for $200! I picked them up locally. I was going to haggle it down to $180 because the passenger side had stuff growing in it. I pried it open and manage to only cause minor cracks. I layer it lens down to not let the electronics to get wet, and poured descaling solution in it, rinsed it with water then baked it in the oven in low heat to get rid of the moisture, then super glued it back together. I think I got back in June or July of 19. No moisture issue so far.
