I would say the answer depends on what type of driving you do. If everything you do is city, then I would dump as much weight as you can. If everything is highway the aerodynamics are more important. For a compromise, why not just get some old election signs and zip-tie them to your bling escort rims. You get better aero, the reduced weight, and you don't need to buy new wheels. In the event you need to take the wheel off, just cut the zip tie.
