Another option is to just switch out the oil rings from a cheaper set.

Usually low tension ring sets just refer to the oil rings and not the two compression rings. Oil rings generally come anywhere from ultra low 8# to more than 20# for stock stuff. Most off the shelf low tension sets are in the 15# range.
