Weight of Wheels
Why don't wheel retailers supply the weight as part of the specs? My guess is that they don't want us to make our decisions based on that. Anyway, I sent an e-mail to wheels@millemiglia.co.uk to ask what mine weight, and they actually replied. Here it is:
(BTW: 13Kg = 28.6 pounds - of course now I need to compare the weight of the OEM vs replacement tires to get the total difference)

Hi
It weighs around 13 kgs.
Kind regards

From looking around on the net, it seems that the only time they give the weight is when it's an ultralight. E-mailing the manufacturer of a dealer might get an answer. I wish the weight had been in my mind as a factor when I replaced my stock stuff; unsprung weight and all.

yeah Rota Sub Zeros with drag radials. Sweet band for the buck. However, I think he is looking for a bit larger than 15".

How bout the 5zigen fn10R-C's? I think the 19" is 20 pounds. They are hot too! thumbsup
