hey guys help me choose the wheels.

one of my friend is offering me a really good deal on a set of TII wheels, the 16" ones, but they r quiet heavy, I'm putting together a Auto X car, so I was originally looking for a set of vert rims....but what do you guys think?

dose the lightweight makes an big difference in acceleration? or should I just take up the offer for the Tii rims?

anyone has any experience on this?

go as light at you can, but not sacrificing strength. heavy wheels obviously take more power to turn, we all know this from centrifugal force. what kind of price range are you looking at here?

my price range is really low....so low that I'm emberraced to say, but that's the reason why I'm look at used factory rims. Is the vert rim a good choice for racing?

We may be able to work a deal. I was going to ebay but have been too busy and lazy. Right now I have 2 vert wheels unmounted and 4 mounted with used Kumho V700's that I don' t need anymore, ready to sell. There are another 8 vert wheels mounted but not ready to sell until new wheels arrive. Send me an email and I'll try and get some pics, maybe you want the wheels with V700 - 225/50, if not I can dismount. They'd get you through some events on a budget, I used them for road racing.
