This has been beat to death in multiple threads, and we still don't have bare wheel weights on the same scale. But, let's see if I can recreate the thread.

- I weighed the 19s with tires here (post #10), http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...t=wheel+weight, and concluded the weights were around 23#F/26.5#R for the 19s.

- Exact tire weight was obtained from Michelin by En Rouge here (post #74), http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...t=wheel+weight, which increased the accuracy of the weights and yielded 23.6#F/26.1#R for the 19s.

- In the same post it was stated that the weights on a German website for the 18s are (rounded): 23.2#F/24.9#R. As far as I know, this is uncofirmed by another source.

- The E46M3 18s were about 26#F/28#R.

The best way to resolve this once and for all is to weigh the 18s and 19s bare on the same scale.
