I was working on the car a bit today and my buddy noticed how light my MT rim and slick combo was. I had my 325/50 drag radial in the truck, so we weighed it. The tire alone was 37 lbs 7 oz! My 28x10.5 ET drag mounted on a MT drag wheel was 35 lbs 4 oz. I had to DR mounted on bogarts previously, so just the swap had to save me 10 lbs a side!
Doesn't 37 lbs a tire seem crazy heavy? My scale is accurate, its a digital I use to weigh refrigerant drums.
That is crazy. My 18's with 285 gsd3's on it wieghd in at 57lbs and when I went with the same size Nitto it went up to 63 lbs. But my Hoosier dot drag radials 275/50/15's on my 15x10 prostars weigh 32lbs mounted on the wheels!
I think the 325/XX/15 nitto weighd 42lbs on the pro star but it is alot more tire.
