18 inch wheel owners - PLEASE weigh

your stock 18 inch front and rear tire/wheel. to increase accuracy weight yourself holding the tire then weigh just yourself. subtract and get the defference. please post. thanks in advance

We have exact figures for the 18" PS2, so all we need is for someone to weigh his/her 18" wheel with a PS2 mounted on it.

I'll do it after I get back from a long business trip. It'll be the middle of May, sorry for the wait.

Thanks for the birthday wishes, 38 going on 14!

Been offroading in the Jeep today so still not had chance, sorry. Hoping I'll get chance tomorrow evening as I'll have to jack the jeep up anyway after ripping the engine guard off the bottom on a rock today.

It's dirtier than a cheap hooker.

Oh for Pete's sake. Cant find the locking wheel nut 'key' anywhere!

And rooting in the boot, I noticed that one of the catches for the boot luggage net is broken, back to the stealers!

I would weigh it first with the tire by itself. Then weigh it again with you holding the wheel and subtract 300 pounds and we should have a good ballpark range for weight...

My wheel lock keys are in the tool area of the trunk.

I would need to pop over to the good ole U S of A and partake in some good ole supersize big macs for a few months before I weighed 300 pounds. I know you guys tend to weigh in at 20 odd stone but we English are still on war rations dont ya know.

I know, since Super Size Me and Bowling for Columbine were released over here we think all yanks weigh 500 pounds and carry CAR15s.

We know that really it's only 70% of you, the ones without passports.
