I don't know how much they weight but I know they are HEAVY.

My 20" wheels with michelin pss tires which are wider than stock are significantly lighter than the stock 351 msport wheel/tire combo. I'm not talking about 1-2lbs either. When i lifted both i was like WTF thats a big difference....

Not looking forward to putting the 351's back on for winter ...

What width tires will you put on those? I have a set of 18s for my winter set up and only have 225s - ridiculously little traction on dry roads with the power this car has.

14.6lbs & gravity cast!

I would suggest that you call TireRack to verify that weight.

Here's the same model/size wheel, but 20.8lbs in grey: Sparco Assetto Gara Matte Graphite Silver

and 20.9lbs in bronze: Sparco Assetto Gara Bronze Painted

14lbs does sound way too low. 20lbs is already considered really light weight. Keep in mind unless you only plan on using these at the track wheels like these prolly won't last too long in the tri-state area.

The stock 351's are about about 30-35lbs each and ~50lbs with tires mounted. I know because I've shipped them before and had to weight them.
The OEM M5 are 21lbs each with PSS mounted cause they are forged. That's what the UPS shipping label said on each wheel and tire when I've received them.

I don't know, but my all-around tires+wheels are really heavy. I have 18" BMW OEM wheels (Ronal mfg.) and Conti snows. Both sets are extremely heavy.

You should see if you can get a wider tire. With the hp your making 245s are really skinny. Are you getting slicks?

Also, not sure about your car but my 6MT hits redline in 3rd about a second before crossing the line. If you notice a late shift you may want to go with a taller tire if these are track only. I'm guessing it would save me ~.3 seconds just removing the need to shift 3-4.

I measured the OEM 351M with Goodyear Eagle LS and the weight we 63.4lbs.

The M5's 343M rims might conceivably weigh as little 21lbs, but the wheel & tire would be around 50lbs. Per the Felgen Katalog they are listed Front/Rear at 24.6/25.7lbs: http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com/

As a side note, BMW does know how to make heavy wheels. The BMW 300M wheels on my X5M front/rear weighed 39.3/41.1lbs. They look sweet, but 40lb rims and heavy RFTs on a performance vehicle.
