So I want to get rid of the wheels on my car and swap them out for something black the Silver on a Red (Hopefully neo chrome eventually) FOST I'm not really feeling it so I want to go black the issue is I don't know exactly what would be better to go with the black ST wheels or aftermarket wheels. Because I was thinking about the weight of the wheels and would that make much of a difference? Would going to a 16lb wheel make much of a difference in how the drive feels or overall performance?

A 16lb wheel would make a significant difference on how the car feels, that's around 9lbs of unsprung/rotating mass per corner as the stock wheels are around 25lbs. Turn in, braking, and acceleration will all improve and the car should feel more agile.
