lightweight wheels

So I'm having an impossible time trying to find 16 inch rota slipstreams.

If i have to go for another option, what other wheels out there would you
say are very similar in appearance and weight as the rota slipstream?

I was also thinking about motegi trak lite (but i think they are really expensive).

What wheels would you say are similar to the rota slipstream? (im looking for black).

I think the rota slipstream are all 3....but hard to find for the focus. In the meantime, any other wheel out there that is similar?

I've noticed most of the aftermarket wheels are just OVER THE TOP. I don't want chrome or weird designs....looking for something nice and simple like the slipstream. Motegi Trak Lite look like the slips only thinner 5 spoke.
