I found that the 215/45-17 tires weighed a few pounds more than the 215/35-18s.

I was really looking for a certain look with the 18's, but I didn't want a heavy wheel. I really like the gunmetal Enkei RSV 18x7.5s. Unfortunately they weigh like 27 pounds each.. (laughs) so they weren't going to be a good choice for me. The 7.5" width of the RSV gives the 215/35-18 tire sidewalls that nice rounded tuck look I love that you just don't get with the 7" width wheels. I'll definately get a set for my 2nd SVT (daily driver)!
