OEM SRT wheel weights?

I am thinking of picking up a set of SRT wheels and want to know what they weigh.

how much does a "spider monkey" weigh versus a "goliath"

I currently have a set of 2014 overland wheels and they weight 35 lbs. per wheel.

Re: OEM SRT wheel weights?

Ahhh shoot I had this information but I cant recall exact weights. I had a set of OEM new takeoff black chrome goliath wheels with the all season Scorpion Verde tires. Here is the problem with the SRT wheels and tires....they are EXTREMELY heavy!! So much so that I wont even run them on a non-SRT Grand Cherokee, especially the V6. They look great, but you will feel the extra weight on everyday driving as well as at the pump. If neither of those things matter than by all means go for it. The weight differences between the Goliath and Spider monkey wheels would be minimal to none.
I could be wrong, but for some reason the number 80lbs per wheel/tire combo comes to mind as sounding familiar. I have shipped them before so I did have exact weights of each wheel/tire combo and I think that was it. Maybe 78lbs to be exact!! Lets just say that the stock Overland wheels and tires feel like feathers compared. I always wondered how much more nimble and quick the SRT could be if they had a set of light weight wheels on that thing.

Re: OEM SRT wheel weights?

As a SRT owner, I absolutely agree these are heavy wheels/tires. I have the spider monkeys. Some of the added weight is from the run-flat Pirellis, which weigh 43lbs a piece. Next time I take off a wheel I should weigh the combo to figure out the wheel weight. Although, they are forged wheels, not cast, which are stronger and should be lighter. Not quite the case here. I am very interested in trying to get my hands on a set of the new 2016 lightweight wheels on the SRT Night Edition.

Re: OEM SRT wheel weights?

The overland 5 spoke is 35lbs. per wheel.

The NITTO NT421Q weighs 37lbs.

I am already rolling a heavy set up.

I was curious as to the srt wheels since they are forged if they were a few pounds difference.

I didn't really notice the additional weight of going from 18" to 20" until I put the 18's back on.
