Wheels choice weight vs width

So right now I'm running Enkei Fujin 17x7.5 and they work well, but I was looking for some more width and also they don't clear NSQBBK, so I found these:
-Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 17x9

So my enkei's weight around 17lbs per wheel, and team dynamics will weight around 20lbs per wheel. So I was wondering if 3 lbs per side is a good sacrifice for more tire thread? Considering I spin tires on the 1-2 gear running RE71R's.

I'm worried for team dynamics wheels to clear NSQBBK and also not hitting anything inside the wheel arc. So I was thinking 45mm? or should I go 40mm?

I'm sitting pretty high, so I'm not worried the tires rubbing.

Necro time, Did you finally get a different set of wheels? I am unsure of anything 9 inches wide, I currently run RSE05 17x7.5 17lb wheels no hub ring or spacer.
