I thought about going with 17s, but I admittedly decided to go with 18s as a nod to aesthetics. That said, the 18" wheels and tires I'm adding will weigh 6.75 lbs. less at each corner than the stock 17x7" wheels with lousy 205/50-17 RFTs, so it's all upside.

Given my goals for this car, I doubt I'll make any engine mods, but I'm still gathering info out of curiosity.
My 17"s save 10.1 lbs per corner of unstrung weight.
