Need experience decision

Have a two very sensible options on upcoming tire purchase (price-wise almost the same for the set):
1.Continental ExtremeContact DW
Continental
Front 225/40R18 92Y - weight 21 lb per tire
Rear 245/35R18 92Y - weight 21.6 lb per tire
2.Vredestein Ultrac Vorti
Details - Vredestein
Front 225/40R18 92Y - weight 22 lb per tire
Rear 255/35R18 94Y - weight 26 lb per tire
(In the past had multiple experience with Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta and still keep fond memories about.)
So we talking about 2 extra lb on front and 8.8 lb on rear of unsprung weight oem 245 vs wide 255 setup, weight over wider track...
I would really appreciate experience chime in.
