I don't have a sure answer, but 10.75 pounds each is light for an alloy
wheel, I would guess too light to withstand potholes and curb checks.
Everything is relative though. It all depends on where, how, and how often
you drive and how devastated will you be if you bend one on a pothole.
I would think a 185/70 would fit nicely on this wheel, but the manufacturer
will specify acceptable rim widths for their tires. If you find a tire that
accepts a 6" wheel then you are ok.

Subject: Revolution wheels on ebay
I'm looking at these wheels here:
http://tinyurl.com/34egd (it will take you to ebay).
What do people think about these?
I showed them to my wife, she was unenthused and said they were ok. And
then a set minitors (minilite style) currently on ebay, and she said she
liked these better than those. And I sunk, I told her that the minilites
are my all time favorite wheel.
She went on to say, she didn't care, they were just wheels.
My six year old likes both. Since he'll eventually steal the car from me
:-), he gets input.
So are these street legal? The guy makes it sound like they might be
racing only wheels. My brother pointed that out. he's got a set of
panasports for his race car (rabbit) that are stamped 'not for highway
use'. Is that just a legal thing for liability, or is that a DOT thing?
I like these, not as much as minilites, but I think they'd look good.
The price is good right now. I'm guessing that they'll end around $400.
Could these be repro's or are they really Revolutions?
Would 185/70s be ok on this or is 6inch getting too wide?
