Default have 02' firehawk, need to know lightest wheels that still look chrome and awesome

I had some 18'' lowenharts that were 9''1/2'' wide that were pretty sick, but they were pretty heavy and the factory handled way better. I figured that someone on here would know the perfect balance of style without sacrificing too much performance. I doubt anything bigger than a 19'' could handle the road without easily denting. Any suggestions some websites, brands, model #'s or companies that would look sick on my black firehawk while getting the most bang for my buck? Thanks in advance.

I want to save as much as I can, but price is not an issue on what brand I go with.

also, they don't have to be drag wheels, but I assume those are strong and high quality.

my OEM C5 Z06 wheels feel way lighter then my TT2s. I'd say the OEM C5 Z06 wheels are oned of the lighter sets.

I agree, prob OEM Vette wheels if you want to go with the 18" size. To be honest the OEM Firehawk wheels are probably very light as well. I've got stock chrome snowflakes on mine still (blah), but one good side is they are light.

I won't throw a heavy wheel on my car due to the hp loss, so I'm just saving for 18" CCW (SP500) and then have a set of 15" S/S Bogarts for when I really want to play. But it's going to take awhile to save up the coin for all of that.

so far I have found Fikse 5S or Profil 10's to be the lightest rim for rim on sizes being the same.
