They're not into a huge lip on their RG41.

Tire weights are listed on TireRack.com as 24# F & 25#R. Here are some pics.

Front: 47.0 - 24 = 23# wheel weight
Rear: 51.5 - 25 = 26.5# wheel weight

I suspect the tire weights are approximate, so I would guess the margin of error for this calculation is +/- 1 lb. or so. The difference between front and rear is a little surprising.







Greg, today I checked with Michelin about the OEM spec'd tire weights for the '08 M3, and this is the weight information.

MPN -12666 for 245/35/19 (front): 23.37 lbs
MPN -27673 for 265/35/19 (rear): 25.36 lbs

MPN -21820 for 245/40/18 (front): 23.57 lbs
MPN -25785 for 265/40/18 (rear): 24.01 lbs

That means that Tire Rack was very close with its weight numbers, and based on the pics that you posted, the front rims weigh 23.63lbs while the rear rims weigh 26.14lbs.

BTW, can anyone confirm with data/source the validity of the following weights for the 18" 219 M Doppelspeiche wheels?

245/40/18: 23.19 lbs
265/40/18: 24.93 lbs

If the above weights for the 18s is accurate, that would mean that the front 18s are less than half a pound lighter than the 19s with the rear 18s weight being just over a pound less than that of the 19s. All in all, IMO, the 19s are a bargain in the weight department.

Thanks for that--how were you able to get the more accurate weights fro Michelin? Is there a chart somewhere, or do you have a contact.?

Just phone Michelin with the MPN (Manufacturer part number) which can be obtained from the Michelin USA website (www.michelinman.com). The website info covers everything except actual tire weight.

IMO, the RG41's aren't so hot...too much of a dish, and wouldn't look good in black.
rg41's are 19 lbs front, 19.5 rear...
