Default Looking to buy new 16"s, opinions???

Like it says. I got some heavy chrome 17"s on my 2000green miata. Im looking to go with 16s, preferably lighter, with a flat black color. I like the match in the dark green with the flat black. Gonna be looking around more right now but would like anyones input, thx in advance.

They were on my car when I bought it. Why couldn't the person who had it before me that was the original owner and put 103,000 miles on my car put a quality wheel on it? I think they look good on my car though, but they weigh 20 lbs a wheel and they say Motegi. I think if you look up Motegi in the dictionary, the definition is something like, "motegi: noun, a wheel designed to be so cheap you can buy it with Access; a wheel for people who don't care about rotating mass."

Don't feel bad, my car has shitty Sears wheels too :(. I've got some stock wheels powder coated black that have been sitting in my room for 6 months waiting for new tires.
