Gday

I know that the bigger the wheel is the less power will show on the dyno. Just wondering if anyone has dyno figures from using different wheels on there car?

Cheers

Not quite.
The heavier the wheel the greater the power loss on the chassis dyno.

ok, but going from 15" stockies to 19" wheels there is going to be a loss?

really not worth mentioning, if you are gonna pull your d**k over dyno figure and tell everyone that it made less power 'coz you had ur 22s on ay' you are an idiot.
ages ago we did a test to see what difference running in different gears made (the big OMG, dodgy dyno figure it was done in 3rd instead of 4th!).
1st to 4th (5th oversped dyno) in my manual XR8, all were within 5kw of each other.
