    I'm not sure about the lightest, but some Volk models would probably be much lighter. Check out the TE37's or CE28's

    Why do you care???? The stock wheels are fairly light....if you want lighter go with Z32 wheels as their only 16lbs each. I hope to god this isnt just for performance..

    if cost is an issue, you aren't going to get carbon fiber wheels.

    I guess you could also take a look at the carbon fiber barrel HRE rims, but I'm not sure how much less they weigh...plus I'm pretty sure they would be over $10k for a set.

    Just look into some nice forged rims

    16" Z32 wheels would look rediculous on a 350Z
    Volk TE37 or the Enkei's already suggested, the 18x10.5 are surprisingly light
