Looking for lightweight rims

As the title mentions, I'm interested in getting some lightweight rims with a bolt pattern of 5x114.3 and in 15x7 for my FB and was wondering what's out there that is worth getting? If they come in gold/bronze its preferred.

I would really like something close to this:

15x7 and only 10.17lb

Its just too bad they don't offer that one in the 5x114.3 bolt style, and can't buy a blank to get redrilled.

I would prefer 15x7 but I have looked down that road. You are refering to the BBS ones correct? Aftermarket is what I was more interested in though. Thanks

Im using a couple sets of Rotas..there are plenty of options and they are cheap. My rims look great (red with polished silver lip), and in 15x7 weigh 12lbs, and cost me less then $100 each.

I've found that there's very little choice in 15's for a 5x4.5 pattern like we use. Rota's a good suggestion, there's also Spin Werkes available through Racer Parts Wholesale, they're about 12lbs and are available in a number of offsets. There's also Kosei K1's and Team Dynamics.
