Apex FL-5 are very light, 18x10 weighs 20.5#, and 18x10.5 weighs 21#. https://www.apexraceparts.com/our-wh...ution-fl5.html
The 18x10.5 may be the best choice, so that you get more performance out of 275-305 width tires.
I have a set of the 18x10 on my LS 1LE (FE3 suspension), and I really like them. With a 5mm spacer, they clear my strut. Note, this is a BMW wheel, so I use plastic rings to make them hubcentric. (I am about to fix this with some custom 12 mm bolt-on spacers that will have BMW hub spacing.)

Obviously HRE and Forgeline make some pretty light wheels.

I don't have any experience with them, but Litespeed offers all of their wheels in forged magnesium as an option:

I have Apex 18x10s they do feel quite light. They aren't crazy expensive either

18x10.5 +27 TSW Bathurst is 20 lbs. and reasonably priced. You will need a 10 mm spacer and extended studs to clear the front strut though.

FINSPEED in Austin will make whatever you need including non-normal widths and offsets. Not cheap, but, like your other toys, you asked for the lightest not the cheapest.

Yup...think i can get approximately 4lbs off each wheel over Apexi. Delete EVAP system the charcoal canister and etc wall equal proximity 5 to 6 pounds.
Heater box will be gone too...25lbs.
A little bit more work and i believe I can chop a total
