    Advanti Storm: Above left stock. Above right very slightly drilled.

    IF you drill just 18 thousandths of an inch* more radius in the bolt holes of the Advanti Storm:
    -26.9Lb wheel/tire:
    -10.9Lb $124 Advanti Storm 35mm offset 15x7 in one of the following:
    -16Lb $52 Hankook Ventus V Concept 2 195/50-15 (note width spec 7.8" measured on 6" rims)
    -16Lb $78 General Altimax RT43 185/55-15 (width spec 7.9" on 6" rims)
    -16Lb $71 Firestone Champion Fuel Fighter 195/55-15
    -16Lb $54 Toyo Proxes T1R 195/45-15
    -16Lb $98 Conti Control Contact Touring A/S 185/60-15
    -16Lb $85 Goodyear Eagle LS 185/60-15 MADE IN USA BUT LOOKS DISCONTINUED in favor of 18Lb Japanese model.

    Note: Calculations based on rim width show these tires as very nearly flush** with the outer surface of a Storm (I measured one), & the lightest that will protrude from the rims is:

    -28.9Lb wheel/tire:
    -10.9Lb $124 Advanti Storm 35mm offset 15x7
    -18Lb $59 Hankook Ventus V2 Concept 2 205/50-15 (protrudes 0.2" from outermost rim surface)

    *I used a $15 9/16 bit from Home Depot
    **From 0.09" tire extending past rim, to 0.11" RIM extending past TIRE.



    ALL 500s, INCLUDING 500e, Turbo, & Abarth:


    ~30.7Lb SIXTEEN INCH wheel/tire:
    ~13.7Lb: $220 Enkei RPF1 35mm offset 15x7, or $279 O.Z. Alleggerita HLT 37mm offset 15x7 on any of the following:
    -17Lb $75 General G-Max AS-03 195/50-16
    -17Lb $87 Firestone Champion Fuel Fighter 195/50-16
    -17Lb $100 Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 195/50-16
    -17Lb $109 Continental ContiProContact 195/45-16

    ~29.7Lb SIXTEEN INCH wheel/tire:

    ~13.7Lb: $220 Enkei RPF1 35mm offset 15x7, or $279 O.Z. Alleggerita HLT 37mm offset 15x7
    -16Lb $83 General Altimax RT43 195/50-16

    Note:
    -13+Lb $198 Advanti Storm 35mm offset 16x7.5 still requires drilling, I could only find ONE 17Lb tire option that fits it's width ($109 Continental ContiProContact 195/45-16), & all the rest put it over 31Lb.

    Cheapest method to prevent TPMS issues when putting on any of these over stock? Is it possible to take the sensors out of stock esport wheels and put them into konig dial ins, anyone know? Or have a link to cheap ones if this won't work? I just ordered everything I need, 15x7 dial in, wobble bolts, hub rings, tires Hankook Ventus V Concept 2 195/50-15.
    I decided the Enkei just weren't worth the extra $100 per wheel for 1 pound difference, if it was 2 pounds then sure! They look almost identical to the advanti storms but weight 10.9lbs

    15x7 Advanti Storms are 10.9Lbs too, in chrome. Although they're less in black, silver, or grey.

    When you wrote "but", it seemed to imply that there's a difference in weight. I just wanted to clarify that the Storm is basically the same weight as the Dial-In

    Yep, only difference at all is 2 less spokes 10 vs 12, I got my car today, now waiting on the rims. I'm completely surprised by the amount of pulling power this car feels like it has ... Weeeeee

    Ya, now imagine 8.3% better acceleration just by switching to a 10Lb lighter wheel/tire combo.
    Even stock the 500e is a huge sleeper. Its so unasuming that nobody expects you to blow their doors off
