    I say go w/ the wheels because not only would you lose 28 pounds, but it would be 28 pounds of unsprung weight and I think that would make a bigger difference than a little more power.

    7lbs per wheel x4 = 28lbs
    1lb rotational = 10lb static
    28lbs = 280lbs
    280lbs = .280 sec in the 1/4 mile

    do the wheels

    try to find a light weight tire too (18lbs or less) no point in getting light rims if your just gunna load them up with heavy ass tires
