Harry6: You are so right!! The original thought was from years ago when heavy steel wheels had equally heavy hubcaps. The AL wheels were indeed lighter and you often hear the term "unsprung weight" meaning that the lighter the wheel the more responsive it is etc.
today's steel wheels are very light and usually use plastic hubcaps or none at all. But the AL 's do look great!! and (may) actually be heavier than the steel ones??
