Weight is a important consideration when buying new rims, you didn't know that?

I wanna keep the after market wheels close in overall weight to the factory wheels to maintain performance. Acceleration and braking etc are all affected with heavier wheels. Its called rotational mass.

i'm betting that any aftermarket wheels will be lighter than those steel wheels.

It would be very minimal uless your putting on those big 20" plus rims. You would also gain slight torque increase with heavier. Its not all bad.
