I have never seen Enkei mentioned by anyone here but I do happen to like their RPO1's (and only those...)

Here's my question: I was told by a representative of theirs that their 16x7 weigh all of 15lb's. I like these light wheels and all, but I will be driving competitively in SCCA and will be using the new Bridgestone S-02's (225/50ZR-16) mounted to these rims to keep the all importantant contact with the ground.

The S-02's I am solid about. The Enkei rims though I am still worrying about them flexing or cracking or under the weight of a 2400lb car (yes I am taking weight off of it) cornering tightly at about 25 or 30mph in a radically tight turn.

Any help from anyone?

Thanks,
Philip

Enkei has been around racing alot of years. I had them on both my MG and Sunbeam in the late 70,s. I autocrossed both cars and never had any problems. Seems like I see them on lot's of ralley cars. They've allways had a reputation for being very light. Come to think of it they were on my old Datsun 510 also.
Go for it, I don't think you can go wrong!
