any forged road racing wheel will be lightweight.... but it depends on what your definition of lightweight is.

to me, lightweight is (inches-1) = lbs or under... so a lightweight 18" wheel to me should weight no more than 17 lbs... =)

SSR comps
RH cp-035
RH specR
BBS forged anywheel
HRE anywheel
WORK forged anything
Volk forged anything
etc.
etc.

SSR Comp, SSR GT-7 - check tirerack.com
Volk Racing GT-7 - check importhookup.com

SSR comps are very light, less than 13 lb., but are (I've read) prone to bending. GT-7s from both mfrs. are ~18 lbs. All come in the proper offset for WRX. Good luck with your quest
