Don't know, but weight wasn't my motivation. I did it for the smooth cap hub caps. I was thinking about doing them to my 17" wheels, but finding the right cover, tapping into the spokes, etc, was to much trouble. Not to mention the steelies are skinnier with narrower tires I believe.

This was a great way to get the caps that I needed for all the hwy driving that I do ...
