Have you considered Euromeister Fuchs replicas? I have a set of 17s, but never had the time to mount tires. They are quite light and you will retain the classic Fuchs look at a very reasonable price.
I have considered aftermarket Fuchs, but I don't blive euromeisters make any wider than 9". This rules them out for me.
Braid however will be marketing the 11s soon, I believe.
