Soft 8s or American Mohave teflon wheels

The Cragar soft 8s (15" 5x4.5 with 4" BS) are $1236 with BFG KM2s 33x12.5x15 from summit shipped, but they are not mounted or balanced. I can get the same tires from desert rat with american racing mojave teflon wheels (15" 5x4.5 with 3.75"BS) for $1674 mounted, balanced and shipped (almost $2000 from summit unmounted). The cragar wheels are steel and the mojaves are aluminum and teflon coated. I always like teflon and figure they would be super easy to clean. Also the aluminum wheels are probably a bit lighter. Is it worth an extra couple hundred for the teflons? The teflons will also stick out another 1/4". Any opinions would be welcomed. thanks!

Mojave if you can afford them. I've went from aluminum to steel and regret it.
