Wanting get rid of my daisies (12.3lbs) and get new wheels. Should I aim to get lighter wheels or does it matter?
someone completely ignored the article posted, with test results done by a reputable performance magazine, in a controlled environment.If youre shedding that much weight (say 2lbs per corner) you'll probably feel a difference in handling since there is less un-sprung weight on your suspension. As every one else says rotational mass is the biggest difference. Obviously its easier to spin/stop a lighter wheel than a heavier one. Hence, slightly better braking and acceleration although it might not exactly be noticeable.
