Tire Weight Comparison Question

Updated: Found some data

Does anyone know the weight difference between the stock and aftermarket tires? I'm finding mixed information on the web.

I'm curious how these 4 tires stack up in weight per tire.

1. 295/45r20 All Season Verde Pirelli = 43lbs
2. 295/45r20 3 season P Zero Pirelli = 43lbs
3. 305/35r22 Asymmetrico Pirelli = 44lbs
4. 305/35r22 Vred Sessanta = ?

I don't understand why the 22" tire is heavier. Especially considering it's a non runflat.

Any input is appreciated.

Width for start. Different tyre manufacturers use different type of rubbers and they also can have a different size/number of steel belts too.

Re: Tire Weight Comparison Question

^ Even with larger width I still figured the no runflat and loss of sidewall would be enough to make them lighter.

I'm interested because I have a set of 22" iforged 3-piece coming in a few weeks and I'm curious (you could say anxious) to see how much it affects performance. I've done a lot of research and how wheel and tire weight affect performance. Most important is the location of the weight. Further out the worse. Fortunately my wheels are a split 7 design and are some of the lightest Iforged offers. The tires were the other part of the equation.

Re: Tire Weight Comparison Question

you should also look into some 2 piece rotors from blacktops...they save 20 pounds per rotor...theres 80 pounds of rolling mass GONE!

The brembo sports are lighter too,...but I forget the difference.

Re: Tire Weight Comparison Question

Seriously boys these things weigh over 2tonnes and have 340 plus kW . Anything under 100kg is not gunna be noticeable. Besides its unsprung weight so won't make any difference when cornering.

^ Not worried or stressed. Just channeling the anxiety of waiting on my wheels through various channels.

Re: Tire Weight Comparison Question

random comment: VReds seem to be a nice tire for the price, I simply cannot take the tread pattern style though. They look stupid with opposing tread patterns on each side. And actually, I can't understand how they can't be directional based with that tread pattern.

^ That's the exact reason I don't want Vreds lol. I hate the tread pattern.
