Default Do I really need an 8" wheel?

I'm going to be running 225-45-17's. Do I really need the extra .5 inche up from the 7.5? I was looking and the 8"ers are about a half pound to a pound heavier in a rota. is the extra weight worth it? Will the same size tire look wider with on the wider rim?

....yep shoot the nood
