    You might be surprised that you could get more performance out of the wheels than the $1k in engine mods

    Correct. Quality lightweight wheels will perform better than many OEM or heavier aftermarket wheels. Less rotational mass = better performance.

    Not sure ... you'll need to do some research on weights. I have seen some advertised weights are not that accurate. There's a link I think I might still have ... brb.

    A place to start: http://www.wheelweights.net/ You will need Microsoft Excel to read the chart.

    The free Excel viewer from Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/e...ang=en&pf=true
