You looking for 17", 16", etc.?

If you get the proper size and offset wheels, you won't need spacers. More info needed to better help you.

IMO, a lightweight wheel shouldn't exceed 17" diameter either. Get the smallest wheel that accommodates your brakes.

You could get the 15" sawblades off a 4th gen GLE max as well...

FD RX7 Wheels seem to fit the bill for you. 16x8 +50 at 16lbs for the reinforced versions. I paid $200 for my set with tires that had 50% tread left. If you search old threads on these wheels everyone says they rub on the struts. Its partially true, the tires will rub on the rear struts while the suspension is completely decompressed. When the car is on the ground under its own weight, there is no rubbing.

I have no doubt that R32 GTR wheels will look great on a 4th gen, a little part of me still wants to pony up the cash for a set of those, but they are not easy to find.

I am totally agree with you. Certain 2 facts on this page are unequivocally the best we have all had. You are 100% good here that FD RX7 Wheels seem to fit the bill for you. No doubt R32 GTR wheels will look great on a 4th gen.
