I have a 03 SE. Its still stock
I am starting off with handling mods and want to replace my rims. So far with some research, I picked
1) Volk CE28N 17x7
(Set costs about $1800 and each wheel weighs about 13lbs)
2) Enkei RPF1 17x7
(Set costs about $1100 and each wheel weighs about 15.7lbs)
Basically, I am looking for lightweight wheels that are strong and last a long time. I am not sure if lightweight wheels should be my priority considering that Maxima is not exactly a race car. Do light weight wheels like these make a big difference on a Maxima? Any comments?
As you can see, my budget is between $1000 and $2000. I really don't want to spend $2000 on wheels alone but will if its really really worth it. I like Enkei RPF1 because they are cheap and they are supposedly STRONG! On the other hand, I can spend 70% more and get one of the lightest wheels in the world, Volks CE28N, but not sure if its worth it. Any comments?
Some of you who know a lot more about wheels suggest the right size and width that I would enjoy... like in terms of performance and handling what size is the best?
Can you guys suggest any other wheels based on my criteria and budget?
