I only pay attention to what's used for racing, and since I'm about to buy my real race rims/tires, I'm currently knowledgeable on a few things, because I wanted larger but lighter without sacrificing strength.
The Enkei RPF-1 is 15-17lbs even when larger than stock, fits the Evo in multiple widths and diameters, and it looks pretty decent. However, under extreme conditions (e.g. racing), it can exhibit spoke flex. So, I'm probably going with the Enkei NT03 in the size 18X9.5 with a 275/40-17 race tire. Not going to fit easily, but with the right spacers and fender rolling, they will fit and rock out.
I also have a set of Rota Torques, which are some of the best utility rims you can get, because they can be had for the stock size for only $600 while looking pretty good and not weighing as much as the stock Enkeis (but more than the MR BBS rims). If you want some crazy deep dish stuff, you won't get light more than likely, and it will require some major modification to the fenders.
