I just picked up a set of four TSW Nurburgring 20x9 Wheels and some okay all-weather Yokohama Parada S-Spec Tires and saved a good $40 per wheel and $20 per tire. Definitely worth the time doing a little research and printing out a couple of pages.

Saved some money, dropped another 30 lbs. from the car. Win-Win!
I think between the headers, exhaust and wheels, my baby is about 70+ lbs. lighter.
Removing that unsprung weight is definitely the best way to go and multiplies its value as the speeds climb.
