Default is there any better buy than the 17x8 rpf1?

in 5x100 fitment.

for $850 + post for a 16lb 17x8 +45 i can't find anything better. i'm basically after the lightest, widest, highest offset 17 or 18 i can get my hands on without paying a fortune.

these seem to be it?

There is the Mach V Awesome, 17x9 +42 at 17.8 lbs and $249.
Not saying it is better, but is another option and wider. it also clears Brembo's

I'm sure not having all the wheels on the car might have something to do with it.
