I get that bigger tires = more weight = a lot more power to turn.
But my question is will a heavier/lighter wheel have the same effect as a heavier/lighter tire when it comes to the amount of power it takes to turn it. It's hard to put into words so I think the best way to describe it is with an example.
So, for example, would a 30lb tire + 30lb wheel take the same amount of "effort" to turn as a 45lb tire + 15lb wheel?
I feel like it won't be this simple due to the tire not being connected to the axle or something along those lines, but I've never found an answer to this question and was just curious if anyone could shed some light on it.
