Factory Reproduction rim + tire weight results

Well many of you probably dont know, but I happen to only live a few miles from the Factroy Reproduction warehouse. Today I decided to stop buy to replace a wheel lock key I had lost, and in the middle of talking I decided to ask how much do their wheels actually weigh. They invited me to they back where they keep all their rims and tires and we tried weighing a few and this is what the results were.

These were the srt8 reps and Nexen tires "without air" that were used to weigh.
20 inch rims by 9 inch width weight = 29lbs with tires=69lbs
20 inch rims by 10 inch width weight= 30lbs with tires =70lbs
22 inch rims by 9 inch width weight= 35lbs with tires= 75lbs
22 inch rims by 10 inch width weight= 36lbs with tires =76lbs

Re: Factory Reproduction rim + tire weight results

Awesome bro

Now all that has to be done is a weighing of the stock SRT rims. I wouldn't even try weighing the stock run craps

Re: Factory Reproduction rim + tire weight results

Wait, so all the tires weighed 40lbs for 4 different wheel sizes? Or did you use the same tire over and over again?

Also, do you have photos of the 20x9 weighing in at 29lbs? Thanks!

Re: Factory Reproduction rim + tire weight results

A little visit to tire rack, (general tires, hankook and yokohama for example) averaged tire weight is 33 lbs for 255/45 r20 and 35 lbs for 275/55 r20. These numbers support the common average of 69 to 72 lbs for srt wheels (including the reps) and tires.

I don't want to criticize this post, but I think many forum members want accurate information and these numbers seem a little off from past experience. Thanks, I not here to criticize, I'm just another enthusist.

Re: Factory Reproduction rim + tire weight results

The pictures show wheel and tire weighed together (not separately) and only two of the photos clearly show that, furthermore I can not clearly see the wheel or tire size in the photo. The other three photos only show the scale display. Futhermore, All four tire sizes weighed 40 lbs, which is heavier than most run flats? What is the tire make and size, perhaps the rubber is lighter and the rims are heavier?

The total weights of tire + wheel sound roughly correct for each example, but for the sake of preciseness, I just want to know the actual weight of the wheel and the actual weight of the tire in each configuration.

Re: Factory Reproduction rim + tire weight results

check the weights I posted. in the original post I made a few years ago I posted photos of the wheels sitting on the scale. I find it impossible that some FR wheels have a 7lb variance in them. I have personally weighed 9 of them for shipping and all 20x9 were 35.9lbs exact

I'm keen to get the srt8 in 22x9, anyone know of they will ship to Australia? And how much roughly?
Would they also ship with tyres? I'd be looking for a 285/40/22 108v or 110v


Cheers
Ben
