Default wheel ideas/suggestions, fellow nasioc'er needs help

i have spent the better part of the last few months looking at wheels for my 02wrx.
looking for a wheel that is sub 19lbs/wheel in an 18x7.5-8".
trying to find something in a gunmetal, black, (dark) etc colour.
the rims i have considered closely are the enkei rsv, rota subzero (currently my 1st choice) and the rota p1. i also looked at work emotions (6 & 9 spokes) but are too heavy at close to 24lbs.
would like to keep the cost down as well.
main reason for this post is frustration as i am not having fun anymore rim shopping.
just looking for past experiences and suggestions on wheels.
help is greatly appreciated.
thanks all!

my sort of current setup (now rev. cowl cf hood, wingless)

How about the G-Games 77 Wolf 2 piece. I had them size 18x8.5 with 255-35-18 on my 05 STI and they were hot. Not sure what other sizes they come in though. Check them out.

You mentioned you want to keep them under 19 lbs. That's going to be very hard to find for anything that will "keep the cost down". Even allowing for one more pound would give you a lot more choices.
