10KG per wheel! BLOODY hell. i think thats heavy, is it including the tyre???
Trust me, 10Kg is not that heavy for a decent 19" alloy wheel NOT including the tyre!

7 Kg would be about as low as you could get and would mean a forged wheel to get the strength required for road use.

I challenge you to weigh one of your wheels and tyres for us Juber. I think you'll be surprised! :lol:

I already have matey, the rim it self, Including centre cap (woah must add that cos its extra weight :lol: ) weighed 6.67kg. But with tyre im assuming 8 - 9kg. Then again the wheels were blooooody expensive.

The OEM RS4 wheels weigh around 9 - 10KG i would imagine too. :eek:

sorry if ive come across negative Alan, i wasnt mate :)

Hey, no problem Martin. :)

6.67 Kg is very light (and pretty close to my guess :lol: ). Much as you would expect from a very expensive Porsche Fuchs made wheel!

However, the tyres will probably weigh a wee bit more than you've guesstimated. :wink:

Oh, how I want your wheels on my car! :lol:
