Cheap and light for an E30? You only have one choice, Kosei K1.

They're not as strong as SSR's and BBS', but what is, really. Stay with 15" and I highly doubt you'll bend them.

Also, remember this very important formula when buying wheels:

Strong, light, cheap. Choose two.

Depends on the width. Think under ET30.
