I was thinking of "altering" the stock wheels to save a bit of weight. I'd like input on the method outlined in this video.


Thanks!

Balanced wheels and attached rims are overrated. And it's a bonus that the reduced attachment points force you to drive slower, thereby raising fuel economy. Overall method and physics look sound - go for it! Be sure to include pothole route in your drive test to fully quantify fuel efficiency gains.

(umm, NOT...!)

My favorite quotes from the video are from 05:00 to 08:10:
"The front right wheel looks like it's doing a figure-8. [...] We're not in any rush. [...] Try not to make any unnecessary movements. [...] It even stops okay. [...] Oh, no; oh no, what just happened?"
