Brembo wheel weight?

I'm looking at the RTR wheels.... looks like they are 28 pounds.

How many pounds are the stock Brembo package 19" wheels?

No idea, but the BBS FR500 race wheels are 20 pounds. Now we're talking.

Yea and about $620 per rim. RTR wants about $1300 shipped for all four.

I have the RTRs en route to my '12 GT. I too am interested in the answer to this question. The overall change in unsprung weight is the big unknown. However, I doubt it'll be less. What with slapping on much bigger tires and all. 275/35/15s up front and 285/35/19s on the rear.

Forgestar F14 19 x 10 - 22lbs each (was a consideration for me before I bought me CF5s)

My wheels CF5s
18 x 11 - 21lb each
18 x 9 - 19lb each

I question that figure - I've seen various weights posted around the internet and they were always ~26/27 pounds. I have seen one post that claimed a *shipping* weight of 34 pounds.

That is more inline with what I have seen.

Vorslag weighed the stock brembo wheel+tire weights 57.2 pounds: Vorshlag Motorsports Forum - View Single Post - Vorshlag 2011 Mustang GT 5.0 - auto-x/track build

But to add to the confusion, Tirerack lists the weight of the OEM brembo tire as 27 pounds. Which, if true, would put the brembo wheel at 30 pounds.

Now how much does a base model rim/tire weigh?

This is a normal operating characteristic for your vehicle.
