Lightest 5x112 wheels for MkV Jetta TDI

I gave up trying to eco-mod my '06 Corolla XRS. The best I could squeeze out of my high-revving 2zz-ge engine was 36.7mpg.

So I went out and bought an '09 Jetta TDI! I've only driven it 1200 miles, but so far I am able to get 53mpg highway without breaking a sweat!

I'm exploring a couple options here:

1. Buying adapters for my set of 5x100 Motegi Traklites 50et- not desirable since thinnest adapters are 20mm- resulting in a 30mm offset.

2. Buying an entirely new set of wheels specifically for my '09 MkV Jetta TDI.

So, who makes the lightest 16" or 17" wheels for the '09 MkV Jetta TDI w/ a 5x112, 50mm offset?

Thanks in advance.
