Question My dream wheels are no more...I think. Advice as well.

Well, Tire rack stopped carrying my 'dream' wheels for my car; SSR Type-C in 16x7/7.5 garb. They were perfect...lightweight, came in anthracite and looked great (IMO). The C-RS (the new hybrid) only comes in 17x7 as the smallest, and weighs 15 lbs. While lightweight, 11.5> 15 when it comes down to it. They have only 2 available
SSR website still lists them in 16x7.5 though....

Anyways, now I need to search again. I am looking for a 16x7.5 that is relatively lightweight (between 11 and 14 lbs.) and under 400$ a rim. I must admit I do not like the look of the Motegi Tracklites, but I might suffer if that is the best bet

FYI: I am going fo function over form...hence 16x7.5 vs. 17x8 or something that would fill the wheel well better.

They have the SSR type F in Black (16x7 though). I'm getting those wheels next year. Why not 7" wide? 11.2lbs I believe. You can put a 225 tire on those wheels.
