Watanabe, Rays, Enkei, OZ Racing... there are plenty of brands who make lightweight wheels. ;)

ok ive made up my mind im going the toyo PROXES R1R tyre with a speedy 15x6.5 g.t.r sport black
http://www.toyo.com.au/Proxes%20R1R.htm

some of the tyre shops e are saying go
195/50R15 82V or
195/55R15 85V
and not go the
205/50R15 86V
as it will pull all over the road
and ive been reading on some forums that the r1r tyres are wide
the 195 are as wide as some 205 tyres ]
can anyone comment on that

195/55x15 is the correct size.
Unless you are planning on going to the track, a UTQG wear rate of 140 will be gone in no time, you're wasting it on the road.
Yes a semi-slick is normally wide for it's indicated size.
And for inexpensive tyres, check out these guys ... they were the cheapest I found.

Email for your size.

If Toyo for a street car, the T1R would be better value and it comes in the 195/55 size. No listing for the Proxes 4.

41 seems high, I would say 36 maximum, just keep an eye on tread wear to make sure it is even.
