What wheels??

I currently have 18"X8 ASA AR1 wheels which i find look great on the car but I want to downsize to 17" and I'm looking for some lightweight wheels. The AR1's weigh in at about 23 lbs each , i'm looking for something 18lbs and less. I do plan on tracking the car this summer and my goal for thisyear is not to increase power but to reduce weight. What do you guys recommend. By the way here is the link I used for the wheel weights:

Thanks

Haven't thought of a price for them yet. They are in mint condition and have a set of 225 40 18 Kuhmo ecsta supra 712 on them with over 70% tread left. Make me an offer and maybe i'll consider it.

D-Force LTW5 wheels are less then 16.6 lbs at 17x9



OZ Allegerita are 17.1 lbs at 17x8.5



TRM MT1-R are 16.3 at 17x9



Keep in mind though that some of these wheels are specifically designed as track wheels, they will not hold up to potholes and other rough demands of daily driving.
