Wrangler Rubicon Wheel Weights
 
I'm looking to pick up a set of Wrangler Rubicon wheels (18x7.5j) as seen here. Does anyone know how much these weigh without tyres?

The rubi wheels on the jk are the 17x7.5 moabs at 22lbs each I believe

17? The ones I'm looking at were an option for 2007+ Wranglers and are 18". Thought they were standard on the Rubicon, but I may be wrong. A few more links to show the ones I'm after:

I think those were sold on the Saharas
 
I may be talking out of my butt but I think that the Sahara's have an 18 inch wheel. My 2011 JKU Rubi is equiped with 17 inch wheels..

you are 100% right 18's on the sahara's only,,,,,,,,,,, 17's on the rubi.

One thing I noticed right off the bat on my Rubi was that the balancing weight was enormous! I expect it will be really easy to eat up these MTs if they get out of balance/alignment.

Odd, I've seen them advertised as Rubi wheels. Anyway, back on topic - does anyone know how much the 18's weigh?

If no one answers here...check out eBay. I am sure there are a number of listings for these wheels and one may already have the weights listed, or you can just ping the seller as they would certainly know for shipping reasons.

Good call! Turns out they're about 25lbs, I'll be able to get them in my baggage allowance after all :D
