Aftermarket RIM selection question
I am looking to place aftermarket rims and tires on my wifes car. The tires she has on them now are run flats, which are known to perform poorly if the hit a pot hole. I am hoping to get her regular Michelin all season tires. We don't need the super performance tire, we need a tire that can withstand the deep potholes in Chicago. Her rims are 18s, so already a problem...
I have been on tirerack and looked at rimms I see some rims are forged and weigh about 30% less and cost more. Are the forged rimms stronger and lighter?
Any comments would be appreciated.

Whats in my driveway:
1998 Chevy S10 4x4 ZR2, 1999 Olds Bravada, 2001 Pontiac Bonneville SSEi, 2007 Ford F-350 regular cab 2WD, 2008 BMW 335i coupe (Wife'* replacement for her Bonneville). The Bonneville is my favorite of all the cars in the driveway.
