True. But my original post was open season on all weight loss and light weight parts - rotating mass and dead weight.

And its not just about wheels. Its the combined weight of wheels and tires. There are certain wheel tire combos that weigh less than others. Sometimes the right 18" wheel with the right tire weighs less than a 17" with a comparable tire.
