Default Wheel weight & mpg

2014 BASE Insight

Anyone know the Wheel weight on the Stock Steelies, thinking of Upgrading to
XXR530 17' Rims, would like to know what the weight difference is between the two.

The XXR530s Weight 22.35

Would like to see if the difference is enough to effect my MPG

Oh, the steelies.... Id say 40 lbs off the top of my head. I went from oem alloy to lighter alloy. I saved 10 lbs a corner. No effect on mpg, but it seems to accelerate, stop faster, I can chirp or squeal tires and the ride is better.
