My Ride: Dinan 330ci & 325it
I've got 17x8 BBS RXs on the wagon, with 225/45s. Looks very nice with the 38 offset.

If you stick with that size, the OZ SuperLeggera is a nice very light wheel, for about $250 or so a piece.

Tirerack sells a wheel called "Shuk WR1" that comes in a 17x8 front, 17x9 rear. The rears aren't under 18 lbs, but they're close at 20 lbs. And they're pretty inexpensive too at $239/$249. I've never heard any feedback on these wheels.
