ERIC...What are some lightweight, yet inexpensive wheels that will fit my car?

I have a Mk IV Jetta GLS and I have been trying to look for lightweight inexpensive racing wheels that will fit without any modification.... All the Japanese cars have wheels like Rota and ADR which are very lightweight and inexpensive but for Euro cars there doesnt seem to be anything... The only light wheels for VW's are BBS's but I cant afford them. Can anyone help? I would like to pay $200 or less per wheel and I would like the wheel to weigh in around 15 pounds or so in 16" or 17"..... and please, only helpful replies only. I dont need to hear "get some money and get some BBS's" or "Rota's are rice and suck" and things like that.

If I'm not mistaken, Rota does make wheels that fit the mk-IV Golf and Jetta.
Go to TireRack's website and search by car. You'll find at least 30 16" wheels and 60 17" wheels that fit.

Do you know where I can find who sells Rota's for the Mk IV's? Their website doesnt really tell much =[..... also Ive looked at TireRack at the 16's and 17's but all the wheels seem kinda pricey.

Check out the Centerline rims for FWD cars, very light and affordable.
