Default Why are my wheels soo heavy

Ok . so during the recent Cilajet / clear bra / color sanding process on my baby , my friend had to take out the wheels to cilajet them etc.. During this process i had the chance to weight those wheels.. Jesus freacking christ , I was Shoked .. all 4 tires + rims will hit the 300 pounds mark ..

Of course going aftermarket Volks will shave at least 2 /3 rd of that logically , but is their an Engeneering reason for this Rotaty constant weight ? I keep on remembering the claim that Nissan saying that this car is perfect the way it is and everything is their for a reason , is their a reason for this weight ?

thanks

Probably to keep the car strapped to the road at high speeds...
