I'm thinking about running the formula mesh (I think 21 lbs) with Blizzak LM25's for the winter. My question is, do you think I will notice the weight difference from stock's with the RE070's? Will my car feel slower? Thanks for your input!

For winter driving it will be fine... the LM25's are 24lbs a tire at 225/45R17. The RE070s are like 27-28lbs a tire. So you're losing weight on the tires but gaining it back on the wheels... it's a wash. What you will notice, however, are the squishy sidewalls of winter tires. They actually ride much better than stock.

You could always go with a lighter Rota like the Torque that is equal in weight to the stock BBS if you're concerned about weight...
