If you are replacing a set of superlites/ultralites the unsprung-rotating weight advantage is really pretty much nil.....maybe a pound or two at best. It works out to be a heafty price for a meager improvement. If you have the old star wheels that weight 26 lbs it's a major improvement that is realized by anyone when riding. On your 312rr if you are looking for unsprung-rotating weight advantage you need to look at the rotors...5-6 lbs can be saved there.

Just some info for thought.
