If weight reduction is the goal, then minus well consider other wheels, upgraded suspension, brakes, getting rid of your interior (i.e. radio, a/c, seats, carpet), etc. If not, then I guess you would want to go with what it is that makes you happy.
Anyways, both wheels are bad ass and I don't think you could go wrong with either. Good luck with your choice and make sure to post the pics once you have everything installed!!!
It's the UNSPRUNG
weight loss that is significant, IMHO. I don't get a hard-on over losing 40 lbs on an exhaust, but I DO think shedding 3-5 lbs per corner pays dividends in the handling department. They say 1 lb of unsprung wt is worth 5 or 10 lb of curb wt, or something like that...
