Wheel Weight Comparison

Hi, guys~

As wheels pass through our shop we try and weigh everyone to compile some much needed info on wheel weights.

Maybe we can turn this into an official wheel weight thread and we will keep uploading with wheel weights when we get new ones in.
Here are some wheels / sizes and weights.

Enjoy!

Front : 19x9J


Rear : 19x10.5J

Would the Advan RS 19x9 +22 and 19x10 +20 fit properly on a E46 M3?

Good stuff!

But yeah, any chance of putting 18" ACS Type III's and OZ Ultraleggera's on the scale? =)

i used to use wheelweights.net, but i think those might be published weights. don't know how often that guy updates anymore either. comparing a few of your weights to the published, they're pretty close. usually the published is slightly lighter, but i suppose that's to be expected.

i tried to work with the guy to give me all his data in a spreadsheet or text file so i could load them into a database and then allow people to search/sort in a webpage, but he wasn't interested.

as a shop, i wonder if you could get suppliers and vendors to send you spec sheets with all that data in electronic format? be interesting to compare all the published vs real weights.

Now if we only knew the polar moment of inertia of these rims with tires mounted we would have the info required to make an informed selection, static weight means nothing in regards to performance. EXAMPLE; Comparing 2 different 40 lb rim/ tire sets, the combo with greater mass in the hub area will sap less energy and allow for better acceleration and braking.

While true, the greatest amount of mass is going to be located in the barrel and the tire (50 - 60% of the total mass comes from the tire alone). It's pretty safe to simply assume that a lighter combo is going to perform the best and 2 same weight setups are going to have negligible performace difference. While a precise analysis might be fun, a simple weight comparison coupled with a consideration of fitment, durability, cost and style should be more than adequate for most.

Proper fitment for Advan RS E46 M3 is 19x8.5 +38 and 19x9.5 +25

I must be the last guy on earth sporting 17s

Nice wheels. I'd love a set of TE37s some day.

I think every sponsor will. They have no choice now that WSTO has demonstrated no problem with full disclosure.
