For better acceleration and Performance 18" or 19" light weight wheels ~which one??

Hi ~ guys ~

I'm trying to get rid of my stock 18 inch wheels and get my self a set of

forged wheels. I know it sounds silly to gain some weight reduction from a

full size 4 door sedan , but thats what I have for now so .

My most concern is that which size I should go for ~

I was under the impression smaller wheels provide better acceleration off the

line and does give you couple pounds of weight savings as well.

However I DO like the look of 19 inch wheels.

Which size shall I go for ????????????

they are both forged wheels 18 inch and 19inch.

18" 8.5 = 19.5 lbs = front
18" 9.5 = 21.05 lbs = rear
18" 10.5= 21.25 lbs = rear ( Will 10.5J fit on the rear?????)

19" 8.5 = 21.4 lbs = front
19" 9.5 = 22.5 lbs = rear
19" 10.5 = 22.4 lbs = rear
