    Does anyone know what the average weight of a 19x9 alloy wheel is.
    How much does the weight of wheels actually affect performance?

    Heavy wheels increase the unsprung weight which is not great from a performance and handling point of view.

    No idea what your wheels weigh tank one off and chuck it on your wifes bathroom scales.

    I did weigh it and it was 56lb with a 265/30/19 tyre.
    Seems very heavy to me.

    the mtm 9.5x19 wheels which are heavy are 16.4kg (33-34lb) without tyre

    most aftermarket 19" are about 26-28lb each wheel only
    the lightest 19" forged wheels are about 22lb each
