Enkei GT7 Black Rims fitment?

Would one of you more knowledgable folks help me out with some home work?
Looking at these for my White 18 ES. I'd like to make sure they will fit both the ES, and the stock tires.
Measurements can be found on the bottom of the linked page and below as well.
18 x 8 5/114.3 50 mm. 72.62 21.2 lbs.

I'm usually not a hug fan of black rims, but with a black spoiler and tinted windows it should tie in rather well. TireRack has a pretty good visual here. Opinions greatly welcomed.

These GT7's seem to be one of the lightest 18" rims I could find with in the right price range, at 21lbs per wheel over the 26lbs stock. Hoping to get a bit of a performance bump shaving 5lbs per wheel. Please educate me otherwise or if you wanna toss out a few more suggestions before I go ahead? Any and all are welcome. Looking for something in black, or black with machined details.

Tires will change when I chew through the stock. Bouncing between the Firehawk 500's and Nitto NeoGen's. Calgary weather can get a little twisted at any time of year (random snow in May is not uncommon), so the NeoGen's broader weather coverage is pretty appealing over the Firehawks. Again, all options welcome.

Cheers folks!

Insert sarcastic, witty comment here.

Fitment will be fine on the wheels.

The Motegi Traklite MR131's are actually a bit lighter than these. 18x8 are 18.7 pounds. MSRP $174 USD.

That's a big difference in weight. Let us know how much of an improvement you see.

Certainly will. I do have some concern (now after more research) with running them daily though, and if they can handle the abuse of regular driving. I know a few people here have run them daily, anyone have any issues so far?

I'm interested in the Motegis too, so I emailed them this morning and they responded in a couple hours.

They said the TrakLite is suitable for daily driving. Of course this is from the party that wants your money. So take that with a grain of salt.

I'm buying another set soon to use for autocross. They're good wheels, no need to worry.

Motegi Rims came in. If anyones curious how they look...
Car definitely feels lighter on its feet. Not monumental gains, but for an upgrade that hits aesthetics and performance for a decent price, and doesn't mess with warranty, I'm happy with the result.
