Default What do the stock 17x7 steel wheels weigh?

I have searched and searched, but cannot find the answer. I am hoping that going to aluminum wheels will offset going to a larger tire weight wise, at least a little, but my aluminums are wider...

Are you sure they are 17x7? This chart lists 17x7, 17x7.5, and 17x8. Match the part number up to be sure you are looking at the right one.

Thank you! My build sheet says "WEAS 17X7.0 Steel Wheels", so according to that awesome link you provided, my steel ones are 33.5 lbs. My new ProComp Xtremes are only 24 lbs.

That means in wheels I shaved off a total of 38 lbs. of rotating weight!

The Hankook Dynapro HT 24570r17 tires on my Ram now are 35 lbs. each.

The BFG Rugged Terrain 26570r17 tires I ordered are 40lbs each.

So add back 20 lbs.

I am going to bigger, almost all terrain tires, and still losing 18 lbs. of rotating weight!

Woohoo thanks again for the help!
