    I have always been a huge fan of these wheels!
    My only concern is that they are probably a little heavier. Should I be worried? Is it going to make a noticeable difference?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    6-8lbs per wheel, or 6-8lbs total? If 6-8lbs per wheel, that's enough of an increase that you'd probably notice a very slight decrease in acceleration. Greater moment of inertia and all that. Still... I'd take it for those wheels. :cool:

    BTW, Commander Keen rocks.:bigthumb:
