Light wheel choices for DS

Any suggestions for lightweight wheels legal for street class? I'm considering Enkie RPF1 or TR Motorsports C1's in 16x7. The Enkie wheels are about 1.5 lbs lighter, but $400 more per set.... is 1.5 lbs worth it? I can't find many other options equal to or significantly lighter. I'm just racing locally, but I'd like to stay within the rules in case I branched out to bigger races later on.

The Enkeis will be stronger due to their construction technique.

I ran the Enkei RPF-1 on my R53, I run the Kosei K1 TS on my R56.

Looks like The Advanti Storm is a decent option, but make sure you pick the legal offset (45mm, 35mm is too low and illegal for DS.) Based on the OE of 17x7 ET48, so you can go +1/-1 on diameter and +/- 7mm in offset.

Others have used the 16x7 option, I prefer the 17s with the shorter sidewall.

Tire Rack has a neat "sort by weight" feature.
