Question re: dyno testing and wheel size....

Thanks for any input, gents.

Couple buds and I have a dyno booked for the near future. Only problem is, it is a three hour drive away. I'd like to keep my HRE 20s on the car, if possible, but also have the OEM 19" wheels, as well as the OEM 18" wheels.

Which of the above sets of wheels will afford me the best dyno numbers? I am thinking the 19s are actually slightly lighter than the 18s, and the 20s are not actually all THAT much heavier (I have seen weights for all three sets of wheels, but can't find data for weight of wheels+tires).

Will it make an appreciable difference??

Thanks, all.
