Default What silver or gunmetal colored 17x8 or 17x8.5 wheels have proper offset?

I'm looking for silver or gunmetal colored wheels for my rex sedan. I would like to put 235/40 R17 tires on. I know some people are running 235s on 7.5" wheels, but I would like to stay in the tire manufacturers recommendations. So...

What wheels are there in proper offset (45-50) in that size???

Oh yeah, I don't want them to weigh a ton.

Thanks!

The 17" SSR Comps are 17x7.5 w/+ 50mm offset...I have 225/45's on my car without any problems, lowered with Eibach Pro Kit springs.
Mine are anthracite(SP?) on a silver sedan, and I get compliments on the looks.
The SSR's are light at about 13 pounds each, and are forged, not cast. I have been told that they will clear any brake caliper made for the WRX..don't know if that is true or not but they clear the 4-pot Subie calipers by quite a big bit.
