Weight of 2012 Sahara 18' wheel?
 
Does anybody know the weight of the stock Sahara 18' wheel?

I would say 20-25lbs as a ballpark.

xcantuaj 09-30-2011 10:29 AM

Thats it? I was thinking more like 30lbs...18inch wheels should be heavier

4Jeepn 09-30-2011 10:34 AM

in general they are about 1/3 less than a steel rim in the same size.

The OEM 17" alloys are around 25 pounds I believe so the 18" have to be more.

I'd do this:

Get on your scale....weigh yourself.
Grab your spare wheel....weigh yourself again.
Post results...

I'm curious as well. Maybe someone with a Rubi can do also....

Several people could do it for accuracy.

I'm gonna go home and look for a scale. I don't know if we have one but I have rubi and sahara wheels.

Thanks!
And if you have one, remember these steps:
1. Take scale into garage....DO NOT take haul big ass tires through the kitchen, living room, and into your wife's bathroom or she WILL keel you.
2. Sweep/clean floor in garage where the scale will be placed...or you wife WILL keel you when you return the scale to the bathroom with cobwebs, dirt, motor oil, and dead leaves stuck to it.
3. Remove shoes for this test or your wife WILL keel you when she finds big dirty ass work boot foot prints on her scale.

These are the kind of things I tend to screw up...
:D

I learned that the hard way too.... I'm not allowed to store my doors in the house either! Didn't have a rack built yet so I figured the living room was a good safe place to store em!

If it helps, my stock 17" wheels come in at 30lbs.

Kelsey73 10-01-2011 07:04 AM

No scale here. Sorry

stryke-force 10-01-2011 05:32 PM

Wow!!

ladyjane 10-01-2011 07:31 PM

I think you will have to take the scales outside. I don't think an 18 foot wheel will fit in most garages!!!!!!! :D

(I am sorry, I could no resist!! :whistling:)

Panther and Kelsey, I am glad you actually LEARNED your lessons!!
