My goals are similar try to lighten it up. on my mopars the oe 6 bolt 130 tooth steel is 30 lb, the aluminum is 12 lb . The difference was noticeable, but like you were fighting with it, and the friction material on AL did chatter slightly.

The best rotating weight savers are, pistons, valve springs, retainers, AL driveshaft, AL yoke, Sometimes AL pullies, rear AL brake drums, Alloy wheels, etc.
