noob question on wheelcovers to rims upgrade

i have an lx civic and have been thinking about gettin rims, but i really see no point to it since the wheelcovers look decent. is there any reason y i should upgrade to rims besides for looks? will rims improve performance for everyday use? i always assumed that the wheelcovers + tire is lighter since its not metal.

If you dont race and dont care what they look like dont get wheels. The gas saving is so negligable that depending on the cost of the wheels (around $1,000 for light weight) it will take forever to recoupe your money in gas savings.
