Has anyone ever tried drilling holes on the face of a set of flywheels for weight reduction?
If you measure carefully, space the holes out correctly, and drill 4 or 5 half inch holes, you'd have a significantly lighter set of wheels!
Only down side I see is them becoming unbalanced and very noisy. What do you guys think??

You or I are more likely to make them unbalanced and noisy doing that. Not worth it IMO, the change would me minimal at best.
