Personally I'd only spend money on wheels if they were lighter & or stronger than the stocks (maybe 20-23lbs max for 19s). I don't like adding weight for aesthetics, but its all just personal preference...some guys do 30+lb 20s & others do 16lb 17s. I tend to lean toward the latter, but like many compromise with 18s/19s that are light and strong.
You have a good point but the way I see it...if I want weight savings I can drive the Evo instead
