After putting on my winter wheels, I was surprised at how heavy my wheels (with tires) were.

Style 162 (with Bridgestone RFT, inflated)
Front (18x8, 225-40-18): 56.5 lbs
Rear (18x8.5, 255-35-18): 59.0 lbs

I wonder what the real weight for these are. According to wheelweights.net, they are 30.0 and 32.2 lbs, front and rear. The site's Hartge numbers match the ones you listed above.

Anyone know for sure? IIRC, there is sight w/ BMW wheel weights, but most of the wheels listed as 11.226/11.926 kg, F/R.

He/She was correct. The stock 18s each weighs about 26lbs. The numbers that was listed are correct.

The 162's aren't too extremely heavy. That's some great info. Thanks!

www.wheelweights.net anyone? Plus, the weight of the 162s is much higher on there, like 14 kg... what is up with that?

Yep. Those weights look high for the 162s. The site below has them listed at less than 12 kg. in any event I changed them out for some Advan RSs to save some weight.

Hard to comment on the weight aspect since every year when I swap them out for my winters I get my 255/35 and 265/35 tires with it. Super grippy.
