Do Heavier Wheels Slow You Down?

Another common question we’re always asked is Do heavier wheels slow you down? The short answer is, Yes. The heavier the wheel and the tire combination the greater your overall rotational mass is which will make for an increase in your MPG in addition to slowing you down. The lighter your rotational mass the better overall performance you’ll achieve. If you currently have heavy steel wheels or factory cast and are looking to improve your overall performance, going with aftermarket wheels may help you as for the most part aftermarket wheels tend to be lighter.
