I think the stock 17 inch S-Spokes look great on the MINI but I want lighter wheels!!

Anyone know of any wheels that look similar to the S-Spokes but are significantly lighter?

Or - any other wheels you think someone might like if they like the S-Spokes, even if they don't really look very similar?

Thanks!

Edit: Did we ever get any info about the weight of the s-spoke replicas from Cool New? As discussed in this old thread:

I just got a set of these from a JDM importer selling on Ebay.
17 X 7, ET40, wt 18.4 lb on my produce scale in Gun metal color. Not super light but over 6 ½ lbs per corner less than the stock S-lights should be quite noticeable I think. Big bucks and way overpriced I think if you try and buy them from Japan. I got lucky and won the auction for way less than normal retail.

Now if Mini will just finish building my car I will have some fancy new shoes to put on it when it arrives.
