    All depends on the weight of the wheels. My current 18's are really heavy Audi parabols and I noticed quite a difference from my old 18's as they were a fair bit lighter.
    You can get lightweight rims but they will most likely be forged and 's

    Any wheel that is a greater weight than what's currently on the car will have some effect, that's the tradeoff - looks vs performance.

    That's why caterhams tend to stick to ultralight 13" rims, looks are secondary to pure performance!!
