      I run the Konig runlites. I can't comment on any other options.

      They fit over PP brakes and are lighter than Austin's by a wide margin and a little lighter than the 18' Pretorias. I've had no issues with them in 2 Sessions with 3 to 4 drivers, 12 events a year.

      That being said, rear sway bar and proper alignment are what transform the car.

There are several wheels discussed in this thread that no longer appear available. Is anyone with a PP car running RPF1s? ECS Tuning lists them as a fit for MK7 but no one is certain they fit a 2019. They are available in the 17x7.5 spec and are very light. I have researched the Konig Runlite (currently very hard to find in 17" in black/gray), Enkei Fujin, and the Sparco Asseeto as the top candidates. Are there any others that I have overlooked? I am hoping to source something to run on for the remainder of this season locally.
      For wheels, the Konig Runlites are the best value at $124/ea and 18.94lbs

      I have 2 sets of Advanti Hybris in 17x7.5. 1 black (painted) 17.6lbs and 1 set in silver (17.2lbs). I think they are the best looking light wheels, personally.
      I got mine from TireRack back in early 2017 for $145/ea. TR doesn't seem to sell them anymore.
      I've used 1 set as my daily wheels for 36K miles and they've held up great including surviving some potholes and train tracks I thought would have killed them.
      Now they sell for $170ish new.

      This is a site with some of the options and good prices, the Advantis and Konigs in stock:

      I've seen photos of 17x7.5 Enkei RPF1s on PP cars before. I would assume they fit unless the 2019's brakes are different.

      Great feedback! Thank you, both. I was not aware of the retailer that you supplied the link for. I think there is a very good chance I use them if the RPF1 test fit does not work.

      What alignment settings do you run?

      I've settled on zero toe front, -1.8 deg rear camber and .06 deg of toe in rear with 245/40 17 tires.

      That's with H&R 26mm rear sway bar.

      I run 32 psi front and rear, then adjust rear pressure up or down to increase or decrease rotation.

      I might go with a touch of toe out up front, but that risks some mid corner understeer and VW used zero front toe on the CSS.
