What are the lightest 19s with a customizable offset?

I love the BBS FI and Advan wheels but they seem to have pretty fixed offsets. I would like to have the benefits of a lighter wheel while maintaining the stock offset to keep the car driving the same way the BMW Motorsport engineers intended. The new HRE R40s look like a solid contender (if they're available in 19"), anyone have any other ideas? Really appreciate any relevant input

I am pretty sure BBS FI's are custom made to order.

I believe BBS FIs come in fixed offsets.

Rotiform SJC 3-piece race wheel.

Any offset you want. Any width you want.

The weight for a 19x9 wheel will be about 17 pounds depending on the backpad thickness so these things are as light as they come.

This is a modular three-piece wheel. Each component is 100% 6061-T6 forged aluminum. Rim halves are spun, centers are CNC machined, then the units are meticulously assembled using the finest ARP hardware for further weight savings.

I forgot to mention, I'm also willing to go with an 18" wheel if the lightness is that much greater. I might prefer it, i dunno yet.

That's right. 17s are in the 14-15 pound range.

These things are tough as nails like you said. If you want one of the strongest, lightest, modular 3 piece wheels, check these out. Lead times are under 4 weeks too.
