Question Effect of wider wheel? (same diameter and weight)

I'm looking at getting the ASA LW5 wheels in 16x7.5. The weight on these is 16.3 lbs vs. 16.5 (I've heard) for the stockers.

My question is: will the wider rim increase rotational inertia the same way that a taller (i.e 17/18") wheel would? I'd like to avoid too much resistance if at all possible seeing as how my car came without one of those turbo-thingies.

Thank you!
