Wheel weight database

Just letting you guys know that I've FINALLY gotten around to updating the wheel weights database at www.wheelweights.net It took a while, but there are approx. 2500 wheels and weights listed now. Please PM or email me with any additions or corrections. :D

I use your site alot but i was wondering to how you obtain the weights? Are these the weights that manufacturers provide, first hand experiences from users, a little of both, or something else.

Just curious.

Thanks, CVL, for the update! (wheelweights = CVL from the forums at miata.net)

Definitely sticky worthy - and when people are considering wheel weights, be sure to have read the "unsprung weight" sticky thread and the "staggered sizes" thread...

Regards,
Gordon

wheelweights,

You are the reference standard for wheel weights in automobiles. The numbers are sometimes suprising if not shocking.

Having load ratings (not a miata concern) and other information such as approval ratings (TUV, etc) would also be nice. Such info is probably hard to come by but interesting none the less if you have it.

Looking at your list, I still can't believe that Enkei ever produced the 60lb Kriminals. It just blows my mind how that wheel ever made it to the street. I wonder how many brakes have ignited in flames (or tire-balancers been broken for that matter) because of that wheel.

60 pound wheels!?!?! Why? Was there a particular purpose for this wheel? I think I'm missing something because that is absolutely mind blowing.
Wheelweights, I think it would be awesome if you could maybe add the things MrWigggles suggested and maybe whether or not they work with TPMS? Maybe someone could compile a list of wheels for the RX8 that are TPMS compatible? Thanks.

Edit: I knew I'd seen it somewhere. WTF no Turbo already made that thread, sorry 'bout that.

Thanks guys. I'm not going to list load ratings since they are harder to come by and would only make the pages larger in size. I'm trying to keep them as minimal as possible to keep the filesize down for faster loading.

The Enkei RPM-2s are listed. 19.4lbs for the 18x8 that I measured. Generally, a 1lb difference (plus or minus) is normal due to different weights for different offsets.

I've never had a set to weigh. If you have the weights, let me know and I'll add them to the list. Thanks.

your info won't be accurate without at least listing the offset and also potentially the application. An SSR Comp 18 x 8 wheel with 48mm offset will weigh different than the same wheel with a 20mm offset, maybe more than 1/2 lb

assuming people read the wheel technology page through

so then you're just compiling a list of data that's hit or miss on accuracy?

Perfectly accurate for the offsets that were weighed.
