Default Konig Featherlite

I'm trying to decide on wheels and I recently stumbled upon the Konig Featherlites. I was wondering what the general consensis was. I think they look pretty good and they're cheap and light. Opinions?

I just got the 15 x 6.5 Konig Heliums in Bronze with toyo proxes tires in a 205/50/15. They rock. I would definately recommend these wheels. I got them from www.buywheelstoday.com They have they best prices I found. They come mounted, balanced, w/ hub centrin rings and they include lug nuts in the price. Their shipping prices are very reasonable and customer service was great. I was seriously looking at going with Goodwin racing then stumbled across these guys and they are great.

for the heliums(any color) with Kumho Ecsta AST tires(195/50/15) , mounted, balanced, nitrogen filled(optional) and hub cenric rings and lug nuts it is only $555.80
anyone find a better deal?

That's a great price and I like the look of the helium but it seems that everybody and their sister already has them.

the featherlites look just like the heliums...just w/ alittle longer spokes it appears...the heliums are lighter weight and they are popular b/c they are such a good wheel for the price...I wanted kosei k1's, but couldn't pass up the deal on the heliums

I ordered a set of these (in black) and they should be at my shop sometime this week hopefully. I know they are light at around 12lbs.

If I like these new Featherlites I will be selling a set of flat black Konig Minuz wheels (also around 12lbs) which have only about 100 miles on them (drove car to work twice before winter came and wheels came off). Looking to get around $350 + shipping or local pickup.

I'd be interested to see the featherlites on a miata. Could you take a pic when they come in?

That might be a while if it's anything like Cleveland.

At buywheels online with 15" heliums and 195/50 Kumho SPT's I see a total of $623. With the $101 additional shipping they are only $10 different than Goodwin. If I calculate with 205's Goodwin is less.

Goodwin was cheaper on several of the same model wheels. $30 cheaper on RPF1's per wheel. With the Konig Featherlite wheels and SPT's Goodwin is a little cheaper. Unless I'm missing something I'm spending the same money and supporting a good miata guy.

Yea bud...re-read my post. I said that total I got was with the Kumho Ecsta AST...not the PST. I don't think goodwin includes tuner lug nuts either...not sure on that though...they never mentioned it to me anyways...buywheelstoday did. Even w/ you're options (spt's and shipping) it is still cheaper w/ buywheelstoday and you get your lug nuts...but hey go head and pay more...goodwin is still a great company

and goodwin is cheaper on the Konig Minuz w/ the Toyo Proxes 4 in 195/50/15, they are 599.99
buywheelstoday is 619.99...remember those lug nuts I suppose though too..that is $20-40 right there...it is a wash w/ those

Sorry I missed the tire model. One of the biggest differences I saw was in shipping. Goodwin was $40 cheaper to Oregon.

Lug nuts and spacers are a nice bonus. Just wanted to show him an alternative. I always have to stop myself from scouring the net for hours trying to save $5. Have what you want? Good people? Price is competitive? Buy em where it makes you feel good.

I should be able to put these wheels on my white '92 tomorrow. No tires tho so it may be pointless.

Sorry about the shitty pictures. Besides the bad quality of the pics, it's hard to see how the wheel will look on the car if you take a pic w/o a tire and on a lift. But here are 3 anyway.
