What drag rim is the lightest? Be just used at the track will be 15x10 I think 6.5" back space but maybe 4.5" seeing conflicting info and will be used with M n H 28x10.5 w slick?

Normal bracket racers and lower budget heads up guys do not need the lightest wheels. Their cost just outweigh the benefit. Some of the cheaper "lightweight" wheels on the market have been failing. We've three sets in the last two weeks fail. One set wasn't mistreated that day but I don't know the history. The other two had to make saves and cars got a little sideways. Both of those times the centers broke.

I would recommend Sander Engineering, Weld, or RC Components wheels. I can set you up with any of those if interested as well as helping with backspace.

Weld makes nice stuff that is pretty light and its affordable. I have a set of RTS's on my car. Light weight enough for me and look good.
