1999 996 17" vs 18" weight differential

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Year: 1999; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 29000;

I currently have 17" stock turbo twist rims on my car. I am considering an upgrade to 18" due to apperance. Will I incur a weight gain which will hinder my performance? I am looking at Mille Miglia Cup 3's which weigh 32lbs, and a quick look at more expensive BBS rims have weights near 22lbs (but at 2x the cost). I have been unable to find the weight of my stock rims. Given many people trim minor interior items for weight loss my thinking is that 40lbs is alot? Any thoughts?
