    Anyone knows the weight for a front wheel

    Hi guys,
    I need to know the weight of a single front factory 20" wheel Style 214 ?
    Im buying a set of 4 front replicas (dont want to deal with stagered wheels, I just want to use same tire all 4 corners) the company is on EBay called Direct and they say the wheels are made by the same manufacturer that makes the wheels for BMW, they told me that each front wheel weights 40 pounds.
    Being curious, I just checked the weight of some M3 wheels I still have with me, and the front ones weight 26 pounds , remember the difference is that the my M3's wheels are 18's but I feel a 14 pound difference is way to much from 18" to 20" maybe Im wrong here.
    Any good advice will be highly appreciated !!

    Re: Anyone knows the weight for a front wheel

    A guy at my work weighed the rear chrome wheel (style 214) and tire and it came out to 97lbs. They are pretty heavy, and with the E71's the rear hub is bigger than the front so unless the wheels are made for an E71 they wont fit in the rear. Hope that helps you out.

    40lbs is too much for a 20" rim. I'd say 34-36lbs

    is what they should be. a good aftermarket - for example BBS is only about 28lbs.

    a 40lbs size is about a 22" or a heavy 21" wheel weight. it must be a very heavy 20's !!!


    I would look for an alternate wheel/tire package but if that's the only style you like a pair of used OE wheel is usually the best bet. Buy 2 used front and use them with your old fronts and sell the rears on the bay. you will end up with 4 oe wheels and slightly more money.

    ps. the same manufacturer story is always the catch, nobody knows for sure who makes the oe wheels. I'd bet my ridiculous monthly wage that it isn't made in china like those copy cats on ebay.

    It would obviously be next to impossible to find information on an F1 wheels moment of inertia, but I could roughly calculate it if i had the wheel including tyre weight.

    So does anyone know how much and F1 front and rear wheel weighs? Please let me know, and tell me where you got the information from.
