Default Weight of wheels

I think this would be some useful info. How much do the stock wheels weigh?
I'd like to see weights for each specific wheel style.

No sure what the tires weigh, maybe 8-10 pounds? That makes 28 pounds. Then if you add 32 pounds of air (average for most tires) you have 60 pounds at each corner, making a total of 240!

I'm such a help!

Ok, that'* pretty close to my guess. Now I'm guessing I know why he'* asking, so the other part of the question is how much does the jack, handle, and spare weigh? Even the trunk pad and carpet are heavy (especially with my upgraded house pad).

Stinky was asking because he trashed a chrome wheel last week (16") and his stock gold crosslaces were VERY significantly lighter.

He demonstrated by showing me how easy or hard it was to walk with one wheel/tire in his hands.. One was hunched over, one was waddling slowly.
