Default where to find 16's?

i'm having a hard time finding some lightweight (preferably lighter than factory) and relatively inexpensive 16" wheels for my 2002 wrx.

can anybody point me in the right direction?

also, what is the wheel width/tire size combo that will give me the most contact area without rubbing on a 16" diameter wheel?

You can try Rota Slipstreams in either 16x7 or 16x8

I can't give you a for sure answer but I would think you might. 245 is pretty wide and most people usually roll their fenders at that point.
