Default 06 sti wheel question/opinions

Ok I have searched and come across some answers to the following questions that I have ... well sort of. Here goes. I am looking for a new set of wheels for my 06 all stock sti I am wanting to stay with the stock 17" diameter and at least a width of 8". I have come to the conclusion from reading several threads that a 17x9 will fit but requires some fender modifications. Is this correct? If so I will be choosing from a 8" or 8.5" wheel. Which width if any would be better or will it even make that much of a difference?

My next questions have to deal with wheel weights and tire combos. Here are the wheels that I am considering.

Work Emotion CR Kai 17x8 (22lbs)
Work Emotion XT-7 17x8 (22lbs)
SSR Type C-rs 17X8.5 (~15lbs)
5 zigen fn01r-c 17X8 maybe 17x9 if possible (~17lbs)
5 zigen GN+ 17X8.5 (20.5 lbs)

I will be running the re070 which way ~ 27 lbs. Which wheels would you recommend with this tire combo and why? Will the heavier/lighter wheels with this tire combo make a noticeable difference in any way?

Also, if you have any other wheel suggestions < $1500 let me know.
