rotating weight, you can coast longer and the majority of weight comes from the wheels

like the heavier the tires the heavier the rotating weight to put it into retrospect

Take tops, for example. Use one top that is half the weight of a second top. Spin both of them, and you will see that the lighter top will spin much faster than the heavier top. Don't really know much else from that, haha. Physics helps a lot with these types of questions.

think of it as you trying to roll a fat person down the street, you'll get tired a lot quicker than rolling a skinny person.

Not if you put helium in the fat persons tires.
