You'd just have to weigh them yourself probably. One issue though is 'rotational mass'. I'm no expert on it, but from what I understand, the further out the weight is from the center of the wheel, the harder it is to turn. So basically, even if they both weigh the same, you will 'theoretically' get less mileage from the 16's. Besides, mustang rims have a horse in the center...
