it has been noted that the RE070's are "heavy" but they are also the tyre which STi specifically specified for the car, so perhaps they were on to something. I doubt you'd see similar performance from anything other than a Falken Azenis in a street tyre, but I don't know how light they are.

look for the "what wheels fit over the Brembos" thread (it's semi-active again so it's on the first couple of pages) for suggestions for wheels.

if you're not looking to spend a fortune, check out the Rota SDR's. they're quite light (~15.5 lbs) and extremely reasonable priced ($650/set, shipped). there are likely Volk & SSR options which are as light but expect to pay 2-4x as much for them.
