Default Sleeper wheel set up?

I have a 94 that I am trying to go low key sleeper on. I am having a problem deciding on wheels. Right now I have some ugly ghetto 14s. I would love to put some 6UL and be done with it but they look like exactly what they are, performance. Should I just try and get a good deal on some stock wheels?

Why spend any money on exterior mods if you are going sleeper? Keep the ugly 14s.

Stock wheels if you want it to appear stock. Aftermarket wheels if you want it to appear modified.

I mean, there is always this page to refer too...

Table of Wheel Weights

But 6ULS would be your best bet on keeping weights down

The stock 7 spokes are actually pretty light. I have been looking for them but surprisingly they are not cheap.

Plus they are kind of mismatched. The paint scheme is slightly different. I am considering pulling them and painting them completely black but I have no idea what they are or how much they weigh.

Just make sure your brakes fit.

This is an interesting idea actually. The rims are hard to find but on CL you can buy a whole car with them for pretty cheap.
