I hear that! And 100lbs!!! I think the cast replica wheels are 1-2 lbs more so nothing significant. If you are racing sure, it all counts, but I doubt he's racing so yea the weight shouldn't even be a factor here. Talking about unsprung mass now, again, such a tiny weight gain will not be noticeable in accelerating/etc so I doubt anyone will pour salt on you
