I've always wondered, do wheels have any effect on car's handling?

It's like UFO. Some people belive they do, some say they don't. No actual proof yet.
Tested on my own server, on many surfaces (roads, sand, grass - flat, uphill etc...), neither speed nor acceleration changed. Grip/handling can feel subjective better, but can't be tested from objective point. Could be just placebo effect.

Yeah, I guess it's subjective. I sometimes have a feeling that it becomes slightly different when I change wheels.

btw. the most significant difference is when you drive Sandking or Kart with thinner and fatter wheels.

Ye and this is probably best proof.
Even when Kart rims are so fat and wide, actual wheel size doesnt change. Btw wheels in SA are unsolid.
In addtion, GTA5 rims do not matter on performance (offroad rims only fix bug with lowered cars, when passing bumps and only for 10 -15 cars, not all) so I doubt 10 years ago game would have advanced wheel system either.

Quoting from Wiki:
Quote
The "Off-Road Wheels" mod is the only modification that changes the performance of a car in GTA San Andreas, excluding "Nitrous" which is situational and "Bass Boost" which doesn't change speed, handling or braking capabilities.
Quite interesting. To be honest, i  feel the difference only when drifting with Elegy, i feel it really different if compared to stock wheels...especially with nitro it is really grippy even if you drive at 60fps

Acceleration is same, depends on ping and random factor. Sometimes same car in SA gets better or worse acceleration, it happens. About handling. Only way to test it from objective point, is to do same test like SuperNova done with fps and turning radius.
Place car in certain point, turn left and accelerate. Then compare results and behaviour. All other ways seems to be too subjective to test.

EDIT: incoming video with test of all rims 3 times on road and shocking conclusion...

On roads, all rims were same, but offroad, something happens...
<a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjdacicxAZ0" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjdacicxAZ0</a>
Video done in way to reduce humman factor to minimum.
Turned left and pressed W, repeated each rim few times.
We got also over 10 minutes long testing all wheels on roads, but this shows all to be same, however car sometimes go tighter and sometimes looser. Seems like there is some random factor on car grip sometimes.
