Can't find the right wheel (I've searched)

I'm looking for a wheel that meets all the following criteria:

-Grey/gunmetal/anthracite
-6 to 12, single, evenly spaced spokes
-18x7.5 or 18x8 (I could do 18x8.5 if it met all the other criteria)
-Less than 19lbs (preferably less than 18lbs)
-Fits BRZ PP without any spacers
-$500 or less per wheel

Seems like I can find 5 out of 6 of those, but can't find something that meets all 6.

Closest thing I've found is the Gram Lights 57Transcend, but can't find an official weight anywhere. I would really like the OZ Alleggerita, but they don't sell it in grey in the USA. They do sell the Hyper GT in grey, but it weighs almost 20lbs.

I'm relatively open to suggestions, but keep in mind I've done a lot of thinking/searching before coming up with the above criteria.

Thanks.

I love my RF03RR 18x8.5 35mm from Superspeed (canadian company)...mine are gunmetal and they fit perfect without spacers. Flow formed 18.1lbs and plenty of space for BBK down the road. I paid 240$ each...I hope they meet all your criteria.Name:  Screenshot_20190331-223151_QuickPic.jpg

TC105X? If you wait for mark-up to go away or get a 10% off coupon, should be just under $500 a wheel.



Don't know about BBK fitment, but TC105 are usually friendly.



Probably one of the lightest wheels on the market

If you're willing to budge on cost, the Volk ZE40s sound exactly like what you want. The 18x8.5ET44 is perfect flush in the front at stock ride height and close to perfect flush in the rear, and will clear any BBK including PPs. They weigh 17.3 lbs (or at least mine do), and they're one of the strongest forged wheels Rays makes.

I second the recommendation of WedSport TC105x, seems to meet your criteria.

One word of caution (just an FYI) is that in a lot of the stock photos online, like the Gram Lights 57s you posted, they show a wheel with the deepest concave available because it looks the best (at least in a lot of peoples' opinions). However, usually those wheels are the 9.5 inch wide variant so in 7.5-8 inch wheels they'll be flatter face.

I think those WedSports look good in the flatter face anyways though, very clean and timeless design. (I just thought I'd let you know in case they arrived and you were like WTF man I thought these were deep concave! lol)

The link from WedSport website does a good job of showing you the actual sizes and faces

Good to know. I'm kinda weird in that I actually prefer a flatter face vs deep concave.

Doesn't fit all of your criteria, but here is an affordable option.

Speedwell Fully Forged RS-R
18x9.5 +40
18.9 lbs each
Will clear OEM Brembo brakes
Lifetime structural warranty

$1,495/set of four ($373.75 each for FULLY FORGED WHEELS)

You would need aftermarket coilovers to run these wheels.
