Insearch of lightweight Rims and tires
 
In my search to find the perfect lightweight rim/tire combo for the Jeep. I have come across some good info in reguards to wheel/rim weight w/ charts. Linked below.

http://www.wheelweights.net/

Check it out...some good info!

"For every pound of weight you add to your wheel/tire combo, it's equal to adding 2X that amount of weight to the vehicle. This applies only to straight line acceleration and braking! It also plays a part in turning due to the gyroscopic effect and the suspension having to control all that added weight spinning around"

The SRT8 20x9's = 36.2lbs forged w/polished face
The SRT8 20x10's = 37.6lbs forged w/polished face

These are my stock rims: Ronin II 17" x 7.5" unsure on lbs, Cast aluminum wheel machine face with painted pockets.

If anyone has any data on the weight of their rims...Please post up!
I'll edit as we go.

Thanks,
Escape
