    As a guide here are the stock wheel weights that i know of:

    5th Gen:
    ATTS - 8.85kg
    VTi-R - 8.62kg

    4th gen:
    92-94 - 10.21kg (pre-facelift)
    94-96 - 7.71kg (post-facelift)

    3rd gen:
    '89 Si - 8.4kg.

    Exceeding these weights with an aftermarket rim will increase your unsprung weight and hence have a detrimental effect on accelleration, handling and braking.

    If it's a Vti-R then it's post facelift I'm pretty sure.

    The interesting thing I found about getting nice lightweight rims but still going bigger is that because low profile tyres need to have much stiffer side walls the total wheel+tyre package is almost always heavier than stock. I bought buddyclub p1 racing spec II+ which are lighter than my old wheels, but once I put the tyres on they were about 1kg heavier per corner. On top of this the moment of inertia about the hub must be a fair bit higher since all the weight is pushed to the very outside of the wheel.
