Default Weight of about ever aftermarket wheel you can find

Found this while surfing. Don't let the fact it's on a Honda site cause pause. Seemed a good resource to post for my Rotary friends:

Agreed, it's missing my series 5 T2 wheels as well.

Seriously though, these kinds of lists are not all that useful in comparing different wheels, since they are compiled Wikipedia style by guys weighing their wheels on whatever scales they have handy. One contributor may have provided weights for maybe 2~3 wheels on the list using his scale, which give you a relative comparison of those 2~3 wheels, but there's no way you can compare the weight of those wheels against the weights others posted for their wheels. Different scales, different people taking the measurements and different errors = useless data.

Now if someone were to compile a list of wheel weights & specs as published by each wheel's manufacturer, it would be a bit more useful.

No SA waffles either and I know they are 12.5 lbs. I agree with Pete, published specs would
be the definition to reference.

I guess it gives you an idea anyway.
