The cost was 1085 mounted and balanced with new lug nuts and center caps. I've emailed the company on the weight, so I'll have to get back to you on that one. And I'm sticking with the stock rubber for now. Then I plan on going with a 305/50-20.

They said the weight would be between 40-50 pounds. But I'll weigh them when I get them.

Is that 40-50 lbs for the wheel only, or for the wheel/tire combo?

I asked specifically for the wheel weight but I think thats to high. The source was from discount wheels or something like that I found on the internet, so he probaly didn't know what he was talking about.

It's about double the weight of the 17" Centerlines I just got.

Yeah I know I think the stock 20's weigh 45 pounds. I think that the new ones will probaly weigh a good bit less that that. I hope they weigh less than that anyway.
