If one got some 18" wheels with the same diameter specs as the 18" OEM wheels and could save about 7lbs. on the rears and 6lbs. on the fronts one could see some great performance gains in terms of breaking and to some extent in driving as well. I'm tossed between lightweight 18" wheels now or 19" lightweight wheels. My target is to find something around 19" for the rears with a similar size to the OEM size.
