The RSe05 rims are one of the lightest you can find in 17" and they fit over JCW BBK. The offset is also low enough so they "poke" the right amount-flush so no need for spacers
I know that the design is not for everybody, but if you like rims that you can clean in minutes and you like "5 star" idea go for these...

I like these wheels also, but sadly they weigh a ton! Like 24 LBS.
I would like wheels that lessen the load for my summer driving. Wheels somewhere in the neighborhood of 16 or 17 pounds makes more sense to me.
