Question Effects of tire/wheel weight on 1/4 mile times???

I was just curious if anyone had any data on the effects of tire/wheel combination weight on acceleration, i.e., 1/8 or 1/4 mile times. For all practical purposes, I would prefer 1/8 mile time effects because acceleration and looks is more important on the street; If I want to run good at the track in the 1/4, an ugly set of drag lights and hoosiers would be the way to go.

I'm asking becuase I want to get a good looking set of wheels for daily driving, but 18's seem to weigh so much unless you buy expensive forged wheels. For the few times I would go to the track, I could always revert to stocks. I just thought someone would have a comparison.

Please give some input.

Thanks,

B-Kerr
