Yeah, I don't even know why I brought up the weight subject - my wheels are like 19 lbs. each

Weight is a huge consideration for performance, so I appreciate your input. Car Club members routinely prioritize weight over appearance in the search for ever-greater performance. Since mine will be primarily street, I am looking for a balance.

I'm happy with this choice, and I know it will serve me well.

235/40 not 235/45! You want shorter than stock, not taller.

Sorry, typo. I meant 235/40/R17. Thanks for that clarification.
