How much do procomp 7069 17" weigh? Stock 2013 rubi wheels?

Looks like the packaged weight of the procomp 7069 in 17x9 is supposed to be 24 pounds. Has anyone verified the unpackaged, uncounted weight of this wheel? When I called procomp, they were kind of vague and referred to the shipping weight.

I've seen a couple of different numbers posted with respect to the weight of the new stock 13 rubi wheels. And when I had a window of opportunity to weight them myself, my shipping scale broke. anyone know the confirmed weight of the new rubi wheels?

Thanks.

27lbs.

I have these rims and can't remember how I finally found the answer, but it is 27lbs. The only reason I know that is because my tires are 64lbs and I remember combined they are 91lbs.

The 2013 rubi wheel snd tire total 70lbs and bfg claims 48 lbs for the 255/75/17 km1s so 22 lbs or so for the 2013 wheels.

Okay I wanted to run spareless for a while and found the problem with the shipping scale....

Ordered a tramp stamp license plate bracket and pulled the spare in anticipation of its arrival.

My 37" MTR/k on stock 2013 rim weighed in at 98 lbs. 98-73=25. In my case the MTRs have several thousand miles on them and there are 4oz of weights on the wheel plus the the negligible weight of the pressure sensors.

A call to procomp today confirmed the 24 pound unbowed number.

The shipping scale was bowing down in the middle and flipping out all kinds of whack numbers. Placing a short plank across the platform and zeroing it out did the trick.

It is hard because often tires can weigh more or less than specs say. My 40" trail grapplers on 17x9 vtec raptors weigh 120 lbs each which is 15 lbs less than I expected. I had 35" procomp exteme at (68 lbs) on 17x10 centerline coolers (44 lbs) that came to 112 lbs each.

That is why I posted the thread hoping to find someone who actually weighed one. I missed my own window of opportunity while the 37s where being mounted.

Safe bet is around 22-24 lbs each more than likely. Pretty average for a 17x7.5" aluminum wheel.

Did you weigh the tire and wheel separately? I have seen MTRs come in 5-6 lbs heavier than specs say. By the same token my Nitto Trail Grapplers seem to be lighter than specs say by about 13 lbs each. The claimed weight for my 40s is 107 lbs each tire and wheels weigh about 26 lbs each but the actual total weight is 120 lbs mounted balanced and aired up. Unless somehow I have 13 lb each 17x9 wheels LOL. 94 lbs each is a lot less than 107 lbs each.

The procomp rep did sound pretty confident in the 24 number when I called.

Anyone have a better number on the stock 2013-> rubi wheels? I'm mad at myself for missing the chance to weigh just a wheel when I had it.
