The other reason is that wheels are revolving weight, and lighter wheels will enable quicker acceleration as the rim has to be rotationally accelerated and f=ma.

But I agree that it is silly to obsess about these things on a street car. If you're shaving 1/100th's of a second on the track because you're a professional driver and your payday depends on it, that's one thing, but if it's a street car then what difference does it make, really, if the car is that slight bit quicker? I laugh at these kids that come on here saying that they need more power. Uh huh, you need more power. eh? And why is that, exactly?
