Heavier wheels take more energy to spin up, reducing acceleration. My Forgestars are an ave of 9# lighter each than OE's and the car is noticeably a bit quicker. Most of the weight is at the outside of the circumference, so the larger the diameter of the wheel will have a negative effect as well. Some Forgestar, TSW, Enkei and Vorshlag models offer fairly lightweight wheels for the $. The OE's are ~ 30#.
