Rota are cheap, there are quite a few "urban legends" about how fragile they are supposed to be...

OZ Alleggerita in 18x8" inches are 7,72 kg / 17 lb


ATS DTC Superlight 17x7,5 are 7,4 kg / 16,3 lb (strong competition wheels)


These would be my choices.

I think there is a great misconception about forged vs cast wheels. Most think forged automatically means lighter with added strength. But the reality is that forged wheels are lighter because they can shed off more weight due to their strength. But by then, the overall strength becomes on par with a cast wheel. Usually lightweight and strength cannot be achieved together.... its usually a compromise of sorts. There are plenty of forged wheels that are thinner that bend easily. One name brand forged wheel when first came out was put on a friends eclipse. Within a week, bent wheels... Just keep in mind to take into consideration about replacement. Replacement of a forged wheel is going to be a much pricier proposition than a good light weight cast wheel.

For what it's worth, even a lighter 18-inch wheel will almost certainly have more rotational inertia due to the distribution of mass further from the center. But at least it would have less unsprung mass.

WedsSport advertises a TC105N weight of approximately 7.3 kg (16 lb) for 18x8 +42 in 5x100 here:
http://www.wedssport.jp/products/english/tc105n.html

It looks like RYU posted a photo in this thread with the WedsSport weighing 18.8 lb, but perhaps that one was wider.

Either way, it is a pretty light wheel!
