Adding weight to Great Planes Easy Sport 40

I plan on changing from the wire landing gear to aluminum, and also changing the foam wheels for rubber wheels. This will result in an additional 5.43 ounces (154 grams). I'd appreciate any feedback on this (will it still fly, will it be a dog, etc). I'm using an os .46ax engine, and yes, I do plan on doing a balance test before I take off.

I'm currently flying the .60 size version of the easy sport and it is just over 2 lbs heavier than the max on the box. with a .91 saito ( box lists to a 1.20 4cycle). Yes it is a heavy plane to pick up but is flys and handles like it is light in the air. Try making the changes and at worst you can always change back
