    My 18" x 9" Chrome Saleens with Pirelli P-Zeroes (265-35-18) weigh in at 57 lbs. each. I would assume that the replicas would weigh about the same.

    My OEM 98 Cobra rims (silver finish) with 245-45-17 Nitto DR's weigh in at 49 lbs. each.

    Eh, I wouldn't really say slower, granted I don't just get in my car and do 1/4 mile runs to work, I enjoy carving the turns pretty hard. The lower profile tire and better grip from the khumo's allow me to do this much better now. Keep in mind I only went 1" wider, not 2" like your Explorer and I have quite a bit more HP than your explorer :). One day I may get to the track and actually see how much difference the 18's made, more than likely my 60's will be better in the 18's (better tires) but the ET will suffer.

    The info is welcomed but on the main post I'm only listing ones without tires, because different tires weigh different ammounts...
    The info is welcomed though!
    :nice:

    I'm still around lurking mostly.
    As far as the wheel weight I don't know, I started this thread so people could post thier findings and have a general database of wheel weights, hopefully now that you asked someone who has the wheels or knows the weight will post. :nice:
