Just looking at buying some cheap oem wheels that are alot lighter than my 20x9 XD Spys wrapped in 305/55 terra grapplers. Im not sure if we can run 16s or not on these i'd imagine they would be the lightest. Just need somethign to put a drag racing tire on it and get some decent times down the track.

Yea steel will be heavy. I did the same 20's I have there 17x9 ATX Mojave wheels from american racing. I love the finish (Teflon) and look good. Work great year round since I plow and deal with the Salty roads. Were like 700 all 4 shipped.... I now there were a lot of cheaper almost same look ones on DISCOUNTTIREDIRECT where I do a lot fo tire buying and they have some cheap 17's alloy.
