And you multiple the difference by four...
I've heard the "original" 17" Ruf wheel described as a "man-hole cover"...heavy. I like them though, and I'm told that they are nearly indestructible on harsh streets. The newer Ruf wheels are supposed to be lighter.

I notice an immediate difference when I switch betweem my 16" Fuchs and my 18" SSRs...the Fuchs are so awesomely light!
