Well Gary i decided on the ASA AR1, however i have not decided on the 17 vs. the 18. I am leaning towards the 17" because i already have a new set of contisports that will fit according to the website. How will this wheel in 17 and in 18 be differnt from my stock M68? is there any adavntage to getting the 18" besides looks? are both wheels lighter than stock ones? and finally what performance benefits will i notice with the new wheel? thx

Good choice! Both are fairly light, 21/22lbs on the 17" 22/33lbs on the 18" setup. I don't know the factory wheel weights, but I think they are around 25lbs each wheel.

I think most would agree that the 18" would look a bit better, with a more firm ride from the shorter sidewall tires. The 17" would get you a bit better ride quality from the taller sidewall tires.
