Default HELP me pick wheels given a few requirements

Lighweight- 15-19 lbs

Larger than stock (17 by 8) that fit over stock STI Brembos- 8.5/9 inch wheel

200-300 bucks per wheel

17 inch preferred but 18 maybe


Thanks guys- I like the Enkei RPF1 17X8.5 (DOES it fit over calipers- I know 9's dont but 8's do)

I also like SSR Competition 17X8.5 but can't find anyway to buy them- tirerack looks sold out

I'd just get another set of STi rims. They're really light and it's easy to get a used set from an 05-07 really cheap ($150 a rim). If you want more width, you can throw a wider tire on them. 8" width is good for up to 255 width. 255/40/17 is more likely to have a problem on your strut than it is on the rim.
