Talking Style #44 wheel weighed

FYI, for those of you who have wondered like me, it is 24 pounds 14.5 ounces; the wheel had a total of 6 tape weights on it.

PS, I'm a cyclist (not a drug dealer) and tend to weigh my components.

Interesting - people have stated that the ZHP 135M wheel is ~25lbs? If that is correct... I'd have expected a bigger difference between them. What's the type 68 weigh I wonder?

Interesting... I thought they were closer to 27 lbs. Mine were 49 lbs with the tire mounted and I thought the tire was ~ 22 lbs leaving 27 lbs for the wheel but I never got around to weighing just the wheel...

FWIW, My 135M wheel+tire was also 49lbs on the scale (bathroom scale, me holding the wheel - me not holding the wheel... ultra scientific ). My Kosei K1 + Hoosier autox tire was 37lbs.

The front ones weight 25lbs. The rears are 28lbs each. (off the top of my head from the few hundred times I had to dig that information out for someone on the ETK).

For those of you who want your OEM BMW rim weights, post your wheel type number here and at the end of the day one of us will dig through the ETK for their official weight for you.

I didn't realize they were in the ETK. I could have looked that up myself.

Can you find out what the lightest 17x8 OEM wheel that will fit the E46? I'd certainly be interested in that. Thanks.

BMW itself quotes a shipping weight of 10.36 kg for almost all its 8x17" wheels, including the Style 44s. Some smaller wheels are incredibly light - Style 53, 6.5x15", is a mere 12 lb; no wonder the last 316i I drove in felt like it was riding on air.

Once you have the parts selected, click on "parts info" and it should pop up a screen with some additional information. That screen gives you a "shipping weight" of the part and that weight is actually VERY ACCURATE.

According to the Tirerack,

The Kosei K1 Racing 17x8.5 weigh 16.8lbs (only $199 each!!). That makes your Hoosiers ~ 20 lbs only.

Multiply by 2.205 for figures in lb.

The weight of Style 135M (with tyres and without) has been discussed many times - the others I can't find for you, as my ETK isn't new enough. I would suggest getting hold of a copy of the CDROM if you can - it's a useful resource, not just for wheel weights.

We should have a locked sticky or FAQ somewhere so we can steal one of the 'all BMW wheels' charts and attach all the weights to it.

Wow, those wheels are hot.

The ETK shows them to weigh *exactly* the same as the 135Ms (sounds pretty unlikely, especially because the measurements are down to the thousanth):

P/N 36 11 6 759 896/897

Front: 11.226kg
Rear: 11.926kg

My version of the ETK doesn't contain these part numbers..
It lists the type 42 as a 17x8, p/n 36 11 1 095 342, 10.360lbs ea.
