After doing narrow tyres thinking of exploring the other end, 265 wide, and looking for a light rim that fits. On a budget, functional use not looking to win a concour...

Requirements:
-Light <9kg
- Not more then 300€/250£ a piece
- From the above two: most probably must be flowformed.
- Available (in case of replacement), but initial buy can be 2nd hand....
- Preferably 18x9, 18x9,5 also possible
- ET40 +-2 MUST
(- 5x114,3 obviously)

Likes:
- Concave
- Multi thin spoke
- White

There are two on my list now, but maybe I'm missing more options:
- Tec GT Race-I (Silver)

- JR SL-02 (white)

Any other rim I *must* consider? Above have any downsides? Anything else available 2nd hand that fullfills requirements?

Not quite what you’re looking for but Konig have been threatening to release forged wheels for a while. 18x8.5 ET 35 7.9kg, 18x9.5 ET 35 8.3kg.

They’re also doing a 17x9 ET 40, no weight data yet.

Cheers, very nice especially that F3S. Any idea on price? Prejudice dictates way out of budget but perhaps good value for a forged rim?
ET35 slightly low on that 9.5 though...

The F1M looks like it’s around $500-600 per wheel. So not cheap but maybe 10-15% less than a Wedssport or other top Japanese wheel.

I’m sure I found on a forum that they were going to do the F3S in an ET38, but doesn’t look like they have officially (or certainly in the PCD that is required), pity.

My Wedssport SA25R’s in 18x8.5 ET35 are 8.2kg, so the Konig in the same spec is a nice improvement in its lightness.

There is also the Japan Racing SL-01 9.5X18 ET38 8,6kg, but personally not a fan of the design.

It was the SL02, advertised weight 8.65kg, actual was a shade over 9.
ET and colour you had? You're talking about GR Yaris fitment? There is always some variability especially when different fitments remove different amounts of material from the hub.... That said 350g+ is a bit much of muchness.

Warming to the still new SL-02.

18" but 9" should be more concave, imho looking both light and muscular

But in this colour, I like white on black car and looks better when not lowered?!? (this one is looks like a 19")

Not a classic look but don't think they 'borrowed' the design directly so that's a plus ;)

Still haven't decided if going for the wide low grip tyres though which is the only reason I'm looking at these...

These look good, especially the bronze one…
