I agree. Although I won't being buying wheels for at least another 6 months, when I do I am seriously considering 18s. They have got to be around 3lbs per wheel lighter than 19s. The tires for an 18 inch wheel are actually a little lighter as well, even though they have more sidewall.
Does anybody know why this is? On tirerack.com I was looking up the tire specs on the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2s. It listed that 295/30R19s weigh 29lbs each and 295/35R18s weigh 27lbs each.
