Default Finally have the weight diff between steel & alloy wheels.

Ha, took me exactly 2 years to weigh the alloy wheel on my car to know the weight difference between stock and alloy wheels of the same rim size and same rubber.

Was trying to rotate the tyres during the weekend and got a weighing scale along. It helped that I have alloys only on the 4 running wheels, with the spare tyre still retaining the stock steel rims.

Stock 13" steel rims with stock 165/80 tyre : 14kgs
13" Alloys with stock 165/80 tyres ---------: 12kgs

That is a whopping 8kg reduction in unsprung weight for 4 wheels.
Though I am not sure about the benefits this translates into. Anyone ?

Good question. To quote from another site :

Quote:
To summarize, an additional 5lbs (2.3kgs) per corner of wheel/tire weight (20 lbs (9kgs) total) has an equivalent effect on acceleration of 50-80lbs of weight in the car.

And that doesn't even touch on the non-rotational inertia negative effects on ride and wheel response to bumps in the road.

Requesting Scorpio owners, does anyone have the comparative figures for the Scorpio, for stock versus alloy wheels ? And the handling benefits experienced upon the switchover ?

Thanks

@santosh.s, I was initially surprised to see that your alloy wheels weighed more than the steel rims they replaced. But then noticed that you upsized to 14" & wider wheels.

Default Re: Whats the weight of your wheel-tyre combo??

I was so curious after going through this thread that I went out, bought a weighing machine and checked the weights of the wheels I have.

Adding to this thread the information I found out.

Details of my Swift VXi's steel, 15" and my latest 17" wheels.

Stock Wheels:

Tyre Make/Model - JK Tornado
Tyre Size - 165/80-R14
Wheel Make/Model - Swift stock wheels
Wheel Type (Alloy, Steel etc) - Steel
Wheel Width - 5J
Recomended tyre pressure - 33psi
Combined weight of each tyre/wheel - 14.1 Kg (Total weight for 4 wheels = 56.4 Kg)

15" Alloys:

Tyre Make/Model - Bridgestone Turanza ER-60
Tyre Size - 195/60-R15
Wheel Make/Model - Elegant (ELG)
Wheel Type (Alloy, Steel etc) - Alloy
Wheel Width - 7J
Recomended tyre pressure - 28psi
Combined weight of each tyre/wheel - 16.1 Kg (Total weight for 4 wheels = 64.4 Kg)

17" Alloys:

Tyre Make/Model - Yokohama A-Drive R1
Tyre Size - 205/45-R17
Wheel Make/Model - Lenso Samurai SC-04
Wheel Type (Alloy, Steel etc) - Alloy
Wheel Width - 7J
Recomended tyre pressure - 28psi
Combined weight of each tyre/wheel - 18.2 Kg (Total weight for 4 wheels = 72.8 Kg)

So, my present alloy & tyre combination (17") is 4.1 Kg heavier at each wheel than the stock wheel & tyre combination, making it 16.4 Kg heavier
overall for a set of 4 wheels.

goandude, all,

I would like to make a correction to one particular detail in my previous post. The stock wheel (rim+tyre) weight of the Swift (old) is 14.8 kg not 14.1 kg. I had weighed a almost bald tyre previously. With a brand new JK Tornado 165/80-R14 tyre, it's 14.8 kg.

So goandude, your wheel combo is 0.5 kg heavier than the stock.

Some latest updates:

Tyre Make/Model - Kumho Ecsta
Tyre Size - 205/50-R16
Wheel Make/Model - Lenso Raiden PD6 (16")
Wheel Type (Alloy, Steel etc) - Alloy
Wheel Width - 7J and 8J
Recommended tyre pressure - 30psi
Combined weight of each tyre/wheel -
7J: 16.6 kg
8J: 17 kg

Tyre Make/Model - Yokohama ES100
Tyre Size - 195/60-R15
Wheel Make/Model - Lenso NX (15")
Wheel Type (Alloy, Steel etc) - Alloy
Wheel Width - 6.5J
Recommended tyre pressure - 30psi
Combined weight of each tyre/wheel - 15.5 kg

Tyre Make/Model - Yokohama ES100
Tyre Size - 195/60-R15
Wheel Make/Model - Lenso Raiden PD1 (15")
Wheel Type (Alloy, Steel etc) - Alloy
Wheel Width - 7J
Recommended tyre pressure - 30psi
Combined weight of each tyre/wheel - 15.7 kg

Nice thread

Car: Swift 1.2
Stock 14" steelies -- 7.5kg without wheel trim
Neo Wheels Thrust 14" -- 6.2kg
Goodyear Duraplus 165/80/14 -- 6.8kg
Stock steelies+165/80/14 Goodyear Duraplus = 14.3Kilos
Neo 14" Thrust+165/80/14 Goodyear Duraplus = 13kilos

A reduction of 1.3 kilos at each corner, not bad
