The latest issue of Grassroots Motorsports (Junk Yard Cars) has another article about how the weight of your wheels can affect your car's performance.

The crux of the article showed that by keeping the car's total weight the same and simply reducing the weight of each rim by 10#, a 2000# (mystery) car managed to cut it's 1/4 mile time by 0.1 seconds.

The article also showed that in order to get the similar 1/4 mile time using the heavier wheels, you'd have to reduce your car's overall weight by around 60 pounds.
