Ask the wife, she'll tell you it's true.

Not I have my reasons for picking the 18" over the 19" and most of it is looks, and the all weather grip and comfort the the PS2 have over the Cup+. They are a more forgiving tyre in terms of grip and I believe that they will behave better in damp conditions which we happen to get in the UK more than not.

The actual weight didn't come into it for me.

plus the 18's allow the tires to do more of the work that they were meant to do.

if you drop an alpine white +18's + spacers, you've got a killer.

plus, dark rims allow for a more aggressive look.

You really have to see the 18's in person to appreciate the look, in pictures it looks shitty but in person... WOW
