Affordable, Lightweight 19" Forged Wheels for Model X?

Hi, I'm after improving my range and would like to look into replacing the factory 20" rims with 19" non-staggered lightweight, forged wheels. I like the idea of the non-staggered setup, as I could potentially keep a spare tire in the trunk, but more importantly I'm after lightweight wheels for improved efficiency and range.

Is anyone familiar with any 19" wheels that have a load rating of about 2000lbs per wheel (as the X is between 6500-6800 lbs)? I know forged wheels can be quite expensive, but I figured this would be my best bet for a solid load rating-to-weight ratio. Ideally I'd like to keep the cost to $2000-$3000 for a set of 4, or less. Thank you.
I really like the BC forged 20" I got for my S $3k+ ship& tax, a bit less for 19" wheels. ~4-6 weeks made to order (on front car)
19" forgestar in back flow formed/ not cast(~$1,800?) 20" ended up 23lb I think (53lb w/ RE71R 255mm tires), Forgestars were a bit lighter - 47 lb w/ the same width tires

I was hoping the BCs would be lighter but they are really nice

I've also been searching for lightweight wheels too, but in 20" and/or 21". I'm conflicted with looks/function. I love the look of larger wheels, and the 21 would be a compromise going directly from 20 to 22.

A lot oh wheels are not load rated to our X, and maybe even 19s may have less options. Most manufacturers I contacted have the 2000lb load rating, but only with their 21 or 22 sizes. Best bet for more affordable lightweight is flow/rotary forged wheel in a style you like. Lightest affordable wheel i found was the 21x10.5" TSW Bathurst, weighs about 28lbs, and cost about 1300 for a set.
