is this right?

i just did the tracking from UPS on the wheel package I ordered in last week. it says that i have 4 packages on the way to my home, and the weight is 49lbs.... but the wheels in the package are OZ superleggera, which is supposed to be only 19lbs each, and the tire is ContiExtremContact 235/40/18. Does that mean the tire is 30lbs each??? has anyone measured the weight on contiextrem?

the tire does weigh that much, especially with 30+ lbs of pressure in it.

Also shipping weights are overestimated by UPS for many reasons. One reason may be to accomidate the weight of lugs and other hardware.

the stock wheel with 225/45/17 tire weighs about 43 lbs with 37lbs of pressure.
so should i expect the weight to be around 43 lbs with this combination since superleggera is lighter by 4 lbs?
