CSL 18's

I know everyone here is a fan of 19's and so am I. However I'm thinking 18's for a little more cushion and a little less weight.

Does anyone know what the 18's weigh?

I like the CSL reps, but would they look dumb in:

18x8.5 +40 and 9.5 +22 or +40 staggered

I'll have H&R sport springs on by the time I get the wheels.

I'm assuming I would need spacers for the rear?

What are your thoughts?

Thanks for any input.

Have you seen any pictures of 18" csl's?

I'm guessing it doesn't look that different from the 19's but I want to make sure before I do this.

I believe the original came in only 19's so I am trrying to decide if 18"csl's would be cheesy.

This is my favorite wheel without a lip.
