http://www.tirerack.com has a some 16x8.5 kosei k1 racing wheels that are avialable in 5x100. Although the bolt pattern is custom drilled so it will not show up on the site any more. Just give Eric a call and he will set you up. I have them with 245/45R16 tires mounted and I really like them. They weigh about 16 pounds. You will need a small spacer in the front to make them clear though. I think 3-5mm will do.

What tires where you planning on running because your option are kinda limited.
Judging by your mods will be running SM. That means you must run DOT approved tires. In a 15 inch size nobody makes good ones that are larger then 225 for an autocross compound. If you go up to 16 inch you can get 265/45R16 but thats a bit taller then stock which is not what you want.
