How Much Do Carbon Fiber Wheels Benefit Performance?

Drastically!

 

Only rolling starts were done to eliminate differences in traction due to the wider CF wheels, but I was amazed by the difference. This is one thing the extra $15k for an R gets you.

It's also less unsprung weight to benefit the suspension.

It is really a weight thing. Wheels are generally heavy. These are feather light. Jay Leno has a web thing where he showed off his GT and talked a bit about the wheels.
