Cool 17's 0r 18's for my '02 V6 Coupe

I'm trying to decide between 235/45/17's or 235/40/18's for my '02 V6 Coupe. Overall diameter of tire is almost identical between the two, but I'm afraid the rim may look to small if I go with the 17's. Here's my dilema:

17's
+'s = less weight, less $'s, more choices.
-'s = may look to small?

18's
+'s = Look's sweet with 1.5 drop
-'s = have to run 40's (don't know about this with good 'ol NE roads), more weight, more $'s

Either way, I plan on going with an 8" rim and either +45 or+48 offset. Anyone have pic's of their setup with these sizes, especially anyone running 17's? (And yes, I searched.....)

Thanks.

Go with 225/40/18's. 17's will look just like your 16's, and "small". If it's "performance" you're after, stick with 16's or downgrade to 15's.
