14 OR 15" skinnies up front

I have a friend who has some 14x5 rallys he isnt using. He said that he would trade for my 15x7 rallys. My question is what is better for front skinnies. I know you want to lift as much weight off the front as possible especially unsprung weight. Would the 14" rallys with 205/75R14s be that much lighter than the 15s with 205/70R15?

Maybe 5 lbs difference each.
Each of you weigh a wheel/tire and compare on a bathroom scale or fish scale or freon tank scale.

205/65/15's on 15 x 5" Weld Prostars....Too much trouble finding 165's at a decent price anymore IMO.

I'd think the weight between 14's and 15's (2"wide x 1" larger diameter) might be 4-6 lb. difference for the pair ?
