Factory wheel "Weigh In"

Recommended Posts

I , for one, like to mix and match different sets of factory wheels for a unique look to my jeeps.

With the ever rising fuel prices, one factor I consider is the weight of my wheel/tire combination.

The weight of the tires can usually be found on the tire MFRs website, but I haven't found a good resource with all the weights of the bare factory rims.

 

If anyone has the weight and a pic of any factory wheels, steel or alloy, post it up...

 

 

I'll start...weights are for the bare wheel only...no tires.

 

15x7 Five spoke, Aluminum, cast "Jeep"

20 lbs. (bath scale)

15-30 lbs are consider enough for jeep. But use those wheel which match with road dricing need and better in grip at every sort of ways. Have any other idea about that ?

Well I have to admit I am in love with factory wheels as well currently I have 97 alloy 5 spokes on plus the matching 5th spare wheel, am hoarding away a complete 5 piece set of 15x6" steelies from 87 with all 4 trim rings and center caps, and have 4 aluminum lace style wheels from a 93 country xj.

Yep! I refuse to give up this particular set of wheels. FWIW, mine are stamped with "Venezuela" in the back. 

 

They made a BIG difference going to those from the stock Jeep steelies.

Pretty sure the 15x7 canyons are ZJ wheels. TJ canyons appear to be 15x8.
