Whew! I bet that air really makes them heavy! :wall: JK!no coness said:I hope its not that heavy... my OEM 17 x 8.5 Impala SS wheels w/ 275-40-17 Nitto 555 RII Road Race tires are 50 lbs even. And that is with air in them!!!
Actually, they weigh 52 pounds (according to me holding them while on my bathroom scale). I'll have mine off tomorrow too so I'll weigh them and post.2Cool said:Installing a set of Falken Azenis Friday, I'll weigh the stock setup, both together and separately, and post the results then. I can guarantee that the stock rim and tire do not weigh over 50#s, I had them off today doing the brake upgrade and they were not too heavy.
Most factory wheels are cheaply LP Cast, not forged like the more expensive aftermarket wheels, which makes them heavier. I was actually surprised at 26lbs.CSiJason said:Wow, 26lbs is kinda on the heavy side for 17" wheel. At one point I had 17's on my Honda that were 15lbs each and my drag wheels were 6lbs each! (Seriously!)
I'm personaly looking into a set of "custom" Boyds Billet Forged line wheels. I expect those to be under 20lbs each and at least as strong as stock or better.
