Default How much does your wheel/tire weigh?

Looking for everyone to take one of their wheels and drop it on a scale. It takes little to no time at all. Toan's free wheels thread for some S13 teardrops really got me thinking. What wheels are the lightest? If others have the same wheel but a different tire.. do they weigh the same?

If you wanna be wicked cool, include all of this info!
Wheel (size/offset):
Tire (brand size):
Weight:
Picture:




Guess I'll go first...

Wheel (size/offset): OEM Z32 NA wheel / 16x7.5 +45
Tire (brand size): Federal 555ss 205/50/16
Weight: 38 lbs.




Now it's your turn.

My 17x9 falken hanabi wheels are 17lbs.

This is all no tire.

This is all no tire. Bare wheel no tire matters most because tire weight fluctuates with wear and moisture content (and because tire manufacturers publish their tire weights much more accurately)

Maybe 42 pounds. Rubber band tires cut down the weight though, rocking 22's aint light.

I'll have to pickup a scale but I'd be happy to weight my OEM 7-spokes, S14 SE and Rota P45s

this would make a good sticky if people start participating...

Kevin if you want to keep adding to the top post when people submit new data that'd be great

wheels weigh 19.8 pounds each and the tires weigh 22 lbs each. For a total of 167.2 for all four or 41.8 on each corner.

Yes! That is the exact reason I asked for tire brand/make and size. I figure most of us have tires on our wheels, and are weighing them on a typical bathroom scale. However Kurt, I didn't know the manufacturer published their tire weights. It makes sense though.

That would be awesome Mike. And I can continue editing the first post with the new info. I'll even research the published tire weight to give a more accurate wheel weight.



THE MOST IMPORTANT THING is that everyone who can, should participate. Even if your wheels have already been posted, see what yours weigh. Don't forget to post what tire and the size so we can get to the answer we are all looking for; how much do these wheels weigh? The more data we have the better our results should be.
