Stock 17" wheel weight versus SRT and aftermarket options.
 
Heya fellas! I can update this initial post if you happen to weigh your aftermarket rims and wish to share the weights with us.

** Of course everone's 22" wheels will weigh differently, those with big dollar forged wheels especially http://streetjeeps.net/vb/images/smilies/smile.gif
*** please note if weight measured is with or without tire.


1. Stock 17" rim = 58.2lbs - weighed with Goodyear 245/65/17 tire

2. GENUINE Srt 20" x 10" = 34lbs - weighed without a tire fitted.

3. "Damani" 22 x 9.5" chrome cast construction = 79.37lbs - weighed with Hankook 285/35 tire

4. Genuine rear wheel (SRT) 75lbs: Rear wheel with 315 Toyo
80lbs: Rear wheel with runflat


** thanks to everyone for posting their info!

They ARE forged, so I wouldn't be at all suprised buddy!

The wheels I have on my Skyline race car weight only 12lbs each :)

Mine are 17 x 8 buddy. I was fortunate enough to find my set on a Yahoo auction for reasonable money, they're Uber expensive new.
