Default Spare tire weight?

Anyone know the weight of the temporary use spare on the 09 ram sport?
I think the standard 20" is probably about 75 lb. but the temp use spare is probably lighter.

If it is lighter, it won't be by much. It is a full size spare.

Cool. Thinking of pulling it to get another tenth or so better 0 to 60. Got a portable 12 volt air pump & don't travel far from home.

its heavy as hell. My dad has four of them on his pace truck, and, let me just say...they take some effort to lift them onto the lugs.

I would guess around 75lbs at least with a tire on them. The rims themselves are at least 50lbs.

It's a steel rim so it is going to be heavier even though I believe it's a 17 rim. If you dont travel long distances then pull it! Post times next time u run!

You are correct it is a 17" steel spare, restricted use. The 20's are aluminum on my vehicle from the factory.

I'm not sure about the spare but the Silver 20x8 wheel & tire assembly on my
'10 BigHorn weighs 75 pounds.
