Yeah 43 lbs must be with the tire. And if so, that is not horrible (probably 20-22 lbs for the wheels). You could find some <15 lb 16" wheels, but they probably wont be cheap, and as you note are likely rare in your bolt pattern. Fusion, the motegi's hes talking about are a completely different bolt pattern so a different bolt style wouldn't help much.

I would search tire rack for wheels in your application and see what some of the weights are like.
