Yes, I am not getting into moment of inertia issue on this thread, but generally speaking for a thin-walled cylinder like mass distribution, I increases with the square of the distance between the wall and the rotation axis. Clearly, unsprung weight would be reduced as well, but I don't know that the effects can be simplied to a linear relationship as that would be a function of the inputs.
