Would I save weight by filling my tires with helium? LOL
I know that some tire shops advertise using nitrogen instead of air to fill tires.
I bet I could save a few milli-ounces, better even because it is unsprung weight!
It is hard for me to believe that you could save 500-600 hundred or so pounds by stripping items like a/c, glass, and some insulation.
Does anyone have a listing of how much these items really weigh individually to see the direct benefit of removing items?
With this info one could make decisions on what to change out first for the greatest effect.
