What is the weight difference between the stock wheels on my 02 Z and chrome wheels? I am thinking of buying chrome reproductions of stock. I know the chrome ones are heavier, but I dont know buy how much and what is the disadvantages to going to a chrome rim as far as performance is concern.

How did you get them polished Bud? I would like to either have mine polished or do an exchange for a set of OEM polished rims.

Thanks!
