I am pretty sure that the aluminum wheels are about the same weight as a steel one....due to their thickness.
The biggest performance advantage that I can see is longevity, since the aluminum ones have a bolt on ring gear. The welds on the steel ones like a JW seems to be the failure point at higher HP, heavy car applications.
Here is a link about the aluminum CSR wheel that I run. It is doing a fine job.

I have the weights all written down....but do not have the info with me right now.
Thanks

I wouldn't trust one that was lighter/weaker. As Keith noted some have had issues with the JW wheel, knock on wood mines been fine, and I bought it used lol. I will be making a change to a better one some day, I wouldn't say its lighter though.

6 pads vs 3 is a good thing.................
