  • Aftermarket wheel and tire weights?

    Curious if any of you with aftermarket 16 inch wheels (Panasport, Konig, Rota, etc) have weighed your wheel and tire combo?

    My 16 inch lightweight wheels/tires on my BMW weigh 38lbs, the tires are 20lbs. The 17’s on the 6 are 42 albeit a wider tire. Looking to cut unsprung weight if possible.

    Are there any non-custom forged wheel that fits the TR6? I looked into some custom forged wheels and they start at $800 each. That’s a bit much.

    I’m always surprised by how heavy mine feel. Probably need to hit the gym more.

    I haven't weighed my wheels and tires (16x7 Konig Rewinds with 205/55x16 tires), but I am replacing my Toyota calipers with Wilwoods. I estimate a weight savings of at least 3# per side. I'll be pulling my wheels and tires off soon, I think I'll bring the scale out to the garage.

        As a data point, 205R70-15 Michelin Defender tires weigh about 23 pounds apiece.

        For just a little more, you can do it yourself!

          And finally, it is warm enough to get out to the garage. 16x7 Konig Rewinds shod with 205/55 x 16 BF Goodrich g-Force Comp-2A/S tires weighed in at 39.6#.

            Here’s another reference point. I just weighed a stock wheel (no tire) with stock aluminum trim ring, no center cap, 21 pounds. With Ed’s tire weight that would put the most common setup, stock wheels with 205/70r15 in the 44 pound range.

              Thanks for all the info, I really appreciate it.

              Looks like my 17’s aren’t too portly.

                My new and old rims were both 15x6 ... The Moss Panasport knock offs weighed 17 lbs 2 oz while the new VTO's are 14 lbs 6 oz http://tr6.danielsonfamily.org/VTOWheels.htm Didn't weight them with the tires mounted. And... Wilwood calipers are 5 lbs while the stock ones are 9 lbs 8 oz http://tr6.danielsonfamily.org/WilwoodCalipers.htm
