This is mostly for Lance but anyone else feel free to chime in.

They also have several other models in 17x7.5 that weigh ~16.5 lbs. The torques run ~18 lbs. My question is should I go with the 17x7.5 and a 225 tire and save that extra ~1.5 lbs per corner or go with the 17x8 and a 235 or 245 tire.

17x7.5 models of interest include:

I'll take the width for the small weight increase. That's why I got the GN+ even though they are a bit heavier than the FN01RCs, they are 8.5" wide, the ideal width for 245/40/17. Just my 2 cents.

The GN+ are nice but more than I'd like to pay. These run ~170 a wheel so that's a considerable difference. The cheapest I've even seen the FN01RC is ~210 a wheel and I know the GN+ are more than that.

You're shopping in a bad place. I had a choice between FN01RCs for $170 or GN+ for $240. I wanted the wider wheels, so I spent the money. I wish there was an FN01RC in 8.5, it's lighter and cheaper than the GN+.

Fair enough, but the RPF1 are still a better deal than the FN01RC IMHO. I found them for slightly under $200 a wheel and I don't think there's anything in 17x8 that comes close for the weight and price.
