quick question about stock rims

Hey everyone, I have an 04 svt focus, when I was buying the car (bought it used) these was an 04 ( the one that i bought) and an 03 right next to it, so i bought the 04 after driving both of them and it just felt a little tighter the them 03, also the 03 was a little riced out so that my decision easy, but I always liked the 02-03 rims, looks like the 00 cobra R rims, so I told the sales man that I would buy the car if would swap the rims. He did and I bought the car. My question is are there any advantages, or disadvantages in my decision. Ex. weight, or strength, i always wondered if i made the wrong choice. Thanks
oh yeah and of course

i actually like the 04 rims. they are like the redheaded stepchild of the svt rims lol. they look good on some cars. everyone that adds them to their regular focus gets the 5 spoke or the eaps, the 6 spoke ones get no love.
