Heavy as balls.

I weighed my GT/CS wheels/tires (245/45/19 Pzero Nero) and weighed about 70lbs on a scale. This was on an old scale, but I stood on the scale and subtracted my weight...getting just over 70lbs for a complete assembly.

For reference, I had 275/40/19 FK453's on TSW Jerez 19x9.5 and they weighed about 3lbs less total...which is surprising to say the least.

I also weighed Shelby CS40 wheels 20x9 with 275/35/19 Nitto Invo tires and they weighed 1lb over the stock setup. My 20x10 CS40 wheels with 295/35/20 Invo tires were about 3lbs over the stock setup.

All in all, I'd have to say that the stock PP/GTCS wheels are probably in the low 30lb range. Hope this helps.

This might give you some idea:

https://www.allfordmustangs.com/forum...hts-specs.html

25.5 lbs each for the 19x8.5 2011-2012 V6 Performance Package wheels. I've read 26 lbs for them and also for the 19x8.5 2011-2012 GT/CS wheels in other threads.

I used to think they were the same wheel, but they have different offsets, at least for the '11-12 models. I don't know about the '13-up. Offsets aside, you're probably looking at 26 lbs each.

I read somewhere the V6 13/14 performance pack rims are the lightest 19" rims that Ford makes.

Interesting! It would make sense though. I mean, if you're going to have something called a "Performance Package," then why shoe it with 4 boat anchors?

These 19" GT/CS (take-off) wheels of mine weigh less than my factory 17's did.

Of course, all these wheels are heavy compared to some of the aftermarket options, but within the Mustang arena itself, it stands to reason the PP wheels would be among the lightest of the bunch.

Well I was looking at the B302 Laguna Seca wheels, but they are 30 lbs a pop. I'm definitly not buying heavier wheels. Even if this car will never be raced (my DD).
Too bad.

Offsets are sucky unless you use spacers.

Plenty of aftermarket options out there that weigh less. I think 18x9" Forgestar CF5's are in the neighborhood of 19 lbs each.

Not too many choices in a 19x9 +42. Most of the aftermarket wheels don't have enough B/S in my opinion. I may look at Jongbloed or Forgline but they are $$$$.

My 68 has TSW's that weigh ~17/18 lbs. It was very noticable braking after 25lb. steel wheels.

They're on the low end, but you might be able to find some Konig Milligrams in the size and offset you're looking for. Not bad looking wheels. A little import looking but still very light weight and affordable. Just not too sure I'd want to auto-X with them. Don't know enough about their strength though a lot of non-Mustang owners use them.
