    Hi,

    Anyone have some suggestions for replacing the stock HEAVY steel wheels with some strong light aluminum wheels. I am not interested in the BLING factor at all, i just want them to be lighter.

    A buddy of mine suggested Alcoa's, but i don't have any experience with them. Looking at their site, it appears they only have 2 options, is that right?

    p.s. they have to fit my new tires below in autosig

    The factory aluminum wheels are forged (strong) and can be had for pretty cheap.

    You could also go to H2's if you wanted to go to a 17" tire as well.
