Hi Anthony,
	I'm running 16" OZ Mitos with a 35mm offset with Yokohama A520
215/40/16s.  The wheels alone weigh 23 pounds each.  Add tires and their
43 pounds per wheel.  Stock was 37 pounds per wheel, so I gained 6 pounds
per wheel or 24 pounds overall.  But with my current mods I feel no
difference in acceleration or braking performance.
