    you mean superlites from bob-jane... BIG difference between superlites and watanabes, quality, weight and price..

    maybe try ajps, he can prob do a better price

    seeing as every arsehole tyre shop sells them the supers would be more readily available yes.

    superlights are heavier and of less quality in my opinion. aus made or jap made doesnt consern me i just dont like generic producing countrys products (china, korea etc).

    having said that im not rushing out to buy new wats because of the cost.. you can get a set of supers for the price of one wat delivered. id consider buy a set of supers with no dish (15x8 and 10)... or just wait and get some wider jap wheels.

    compare them to a watanabe in the same size or even a 14" and they'll be heavy as all shit

    Watanabe 15x8 -4.5 aluminium load rating 555kg (not confirmed), weight 7.78kg (weight taken from watanabe website)

    EDIT: Found it!

    Superlight 15x8 -4 standard alloy load rating 875kg?, weight 9.3kg

    Can someone confirm the load rating of the Wata's? Should be stamped onto them somewhere.
