Can you really tell the weight difference from the 22's?

OH hell ya. EASILY. The car just feels like it's almost a step ahead. I swear the throttle feels a little quicker. I know it isn't but the wheels make it feel that way. More nimble.

Traction is much better but still not great.

before, your car couldnt get out of its own way... now it couldnt step on its own toes if it tried.

The car looks sharp with the black wheels! Have you gotten to drive in the rain with those Nittos yet? That was the only thing that concerned me when I saw the Nittos you went with.

It rides much closer to like Bonnies Vette. But still can feel the weight. Just less due to getting rid of the donks.
