I really like the RPF1, they aren't super cheap, but cheaper than most for the weight. I'm shooting myself in the foot with this one, but Drag wheels are SUPER cheap, they don't weigh much and come in a fair amount of sizes.

Any 17/18 inch wheel with a higher offset will work nicely. I like a 17x9 with a 38+ offset, but I have the 5x100 lugs.

As for tires, that's like opening a can of worms. The BFG Rivals, Direzza ZII, Potenza RE-11A and Kumho Ecsta XS are all pretty great tires for the 2013 season. I went with the RE-11A and I feel good about it.
They don't make RPF1's that clear Brembos in an offset that would work.

If you don't want to do a lot of fender work, I'd suggest a wheel with a +45 offset or higher. You might be able to run something as low as a +42, depending on tire size.

Avoid Drag wheels. If you want light and strong you're going to have to spend a decent amount. What's your budget?

Those tire suggestions are good. I would also add the Hankook RS3 to the list.
