wheel questions...

Hello, what is the weight of the stock rc wheels from an 03 and whats the claimed weight of the carrozzerias etc? Anyone know off hand? Wondering if they are a worth while mod to do. What do you guys think? Did anyone notice a big diff when they switched over? Ive done the sprocket and 520 mods already....I came into some loots by selling some old crap laying around and Im debating doing the wheel thing or finishing my vw resto project lol!!

I don't know the weights of either but I understand the physics of what lighter wheels would would do. I have stock wheels too. From what I read it makes turn in, acceleration and breaking a lot quicker. When I went from to a wider heaver mud tire for the truck I felt a big differnce in performance. I'm sure on a bike it would be 10x that.
