Conservative OEM look aftermarket rims?

I'm trying to find some OEM looking but "slightly" customized look rims for my Sapphire Blue Gen7. This means no mesh.. I'm leaning towards 5-6 spokes. I am aware of the TSX Silverstars and love them.. but I'm feeling I could save money going aftermarket. Anyone know of any quality OEM looking rims?

I am looking at the 5zigen Fireballs right now in 17".. here's an ebay auction (closed).

OK, I found these.. I believe these are the CL (non S) stock rims. Anybody have these on their Gen 7?

Hmm, yeah, it just comes down to price. If someone is dumping some OEM rims I'll probably jump on those.. but I think I found some aftermarket rims that I like: Enkei RS6.

Offset is 38. Is that ok for a Gen7? Won't be dropping.

The 5zigen Fireballs look close to OEM. Not sure what else does though

Wow.. so many choices. I think I found another good candidate though.. Rota Battles . The price point is great and they look good too. Also I've heard they're pretty reliable..
