Can't reccomend a 16" since I've been looking at 17", but for wheel weights try: www.wheelweights.com

Then again, those Rota Slip Streams are pretty light and rather low cost. Although they're also not very stylish. I'm getting 17"x7.5" Kosei RT Penta's in Black Opal with 215/45/17 Kumho Ecsta 712's. This setup will be a little bigger overall diameter than the EX's, but will also be about three pounds lighter per corner when compared to the stock LX setup. I think it's a good compramise betwean performance and style. Here's some pics:

I remember calculating this in another thread. I found it: How much do your wheel/tire combo weigh? Oh yeah, they're about $550 - $600 shipped off of Ebay.
