Front: 47.0 - 24 = 23# wheel weight
Rear: 51.5 - 25 = 26.5# wheel weight

I suspect the tire weights are approximate, so I would guess the margin of error for this calculation is +/- 0.5 lb. or so. The difference between front and rear is a little surprising.
Thanks Greg. Always great to see real data rather than best guess!
