Anyone??? 0-60, 1/4 time, & speed on stock SS 20" VS. 19" or 20" light weight wheels?

Has anyone compared the 0-60, 1/4 time & speed on a stock SS using the factory 20" wheels and then using 19" or 20" light weight wheels with no other mods?
Just trying to see what the heavy and tall wheels are robbing the cars of in time and speed.

I'm wondering about that also after reading some of the posts. I was thinking about 18" Z06 knock offs on all 4. I remember when C&D did a test like that a few years back, 17"s had the best handling/ride/performance out of all the sizes.

I think the off the line problem many are having would be nil with lighter smaller rims.
