Question whats the lightest,cheapest, best wheels for dragracing?

im looking for some good wheels for dragracing/performance and something that has some style but i dont want to spend too much money so whats the best wheels prefabalay 19", basically whats the cheapest performance wheels. I made another thread asking about some 20's but i decided to just save up cuz i dont want heavy *** cheap wheels making my car slow, im more into performance than bling factor...btw my 03 coupes color is DG...on a side note, how heavy are my stock wheels?

The smaller the wheel the faster your car will be. For all out drag racing, some 17's with street slicks. Don't expect too much performance in 19's, but if I were to get one for cheap, Luff M1's. You can get a set for $1200 or less.

5zigen FN01R-C in 17's would be a good choice. Lots of size and offset choices, and used by many racers and drifters for a relatively light and cheap wheel

Luff's aren't exactly the lightest, but they are pretty cheap.

good luck finding track rubber in 19's. I don't know if most R-compound tires come any larger than 18s. Unless you're running a massive brake setup, I think you're better off going with smaller diameter rims. If you're gonna drag rather than do road racing, you especially want smaller rims, not larger.

You are basically asking for wheels that don't exist. You aren't going to find a cheap light 19" wheel that would be good for track/drag. You have to make a choice on what you want, you can't have it all. Your best bet is picking up some OEM 19's and putting better tires on those. Thats going to be the cheapest lightest 19" wheel you are going to find, but the widths are a little on the narrow side for tracking.
