      I would think what weight you gained for the bigger wheel you would balance out due to less side wall on the tire. Not exactly but somewhere close would you think?

      23lbs for the 16" ...still looking for the 17". I was actually wondering the same thing the other day when I was looking on tirerack and was noticing the weights on those rims, which seem heavy in comparison to the 16"

      Could also gain some fuel economy/performance having a lighter weight wheel too.

      Might just have to go to a shop, take the tire off, and weigh it
