In Reply to: Actually either one helps weight is weight posted by hugh on March 08, 2001 at 11:39:08:

rotating mass has much more effect on performance than static weight. a set of SSR competition wheels with hoosier race tires (they are the lightest out there) will save about 40 lb total at the wheels. this should be the equivalent of removing about 200-250lb 'regular' weight. it will also improve both ride and handling due to lowered unsprung weight (another kind of weight that is 'special').
