with lighter wheels, you will definitely realize the benefit and feel them.
the reduction in unsprung weight is much more than the literal weight savings in pounds. the reduced unsprung weight will result in better acceleration and stopping power.

this is especially relevant and recognized on extreme settings like when you are on the track. you can brake later and accelerate faster out of corner and reduce that lap time.

I always tell our clients, reduction in weight is nothing without the proper strength of the wheels. different manufacturing technologies will allow for different Strength to Weight ratio. the increased strength to weight ratio is key.
