Do skinnies make that much of a difference?


Didnt mean to hijack this thread, I'm just curious.


I don't know... never tried ...  but some people said it's 0.1-0.2 gain for 1/4mile

I would say the skinnies made a huge difference when I would run street vs skinnie wheels up front. Could certainly tell much restriction was removed when getting the car to move forward quicker.


Took the fronts to FedEX and one 17x4.5 weld weighed 14.8lbs. So multiply that by 2, and then compare your street wheel weight. Some good mass is taken off of rotation. IMO.
