Bunk, that kind of weight will have a noticeable impact on acceleration, braking, not to mention gas mileage. There's plenty of good looking wheels available that weigh a lot less (aesthetics is in the eye of the beholder anyway). Why make your car perform worse for the sake of appearance alone? Doesn't sound like much of a fair trade-off when you think about it. And there's a lot of great looking race wheels out there as well.
