Any noticeable performance/ gas milage decrease going from stock aluminum wheels to 15 x 8" steel wheels? I know they weight more but is it noticeable? Thank's Chewy.

The jeep tends to roll a little easier...They seem to fight the backpressure from the motor a little more than my stock alloys did. You probly won't be able to tell aa huge difference.
