For 18's it's likely the forged Belvederes that were on the 21 AB which are listed as 16.7#. I'm not sure about 17's, but surely they've offered a forged wheel or two? I'd imagine you'll still be limited in width, the Belvederes are still the same, skinny 7.5" width of every other GTI wheel.I'm a sucker for OE stuff, what's the Lightest OE (VAG) 17" Wheel? I know the one's I've got are like 22lbs each.

I don't hate those Q5 wheels and they almost seem like they'd fit pretty nicely at a glance...
Even on my 8.5" rims the 245/40r18 ( 98mm side wall )has more movement on the rim on turn in than the 235/35r19 ( 82mm side wall ) ,but on some local B grade twisty roads I've noticed the 245/40 seems to keep more contact on the road compared to the 235/35 which felt like it was skipping sideways more . Either way I need to get more k's up on the twisty's .
A 245/40r18 on a 9" rim is probably the best option ?
Yeah bentin, that was >90% of what I was noticing and attributing to tire sidewall spread. It was just that the tires were not scrubbed in yet. Now that I have about 500mi on them, they stick like glue. The 245/40-18 on 8" wheel definitely does lose just a tick of initial precision over the stock 235/35-19, only noticeable in like a tight round-about that you are going straight through where you are right/left/right very quickly, overall grip is better, especially on real roads with irregular surface. In addition to more rubber on the road, its doing a better job of micro suspension (conforming to road surface) to not get upset. Its a street car, so that tiny bit of precision lost is negligible.How many miles on your PS4S? Michelins seem extra squirmy the first 500 miles or so. I always feel like I made the wrong choice until they get worn in and then they feel good.
