Default Rims just arrived

Just receieved my MB weapon wheels from discounttire.com . 18x7.5 et48 w/ Kumho SPT rubber. I weighed them on my bathroom scale of 41.6lbs with the tires. Anyone know the weight of stock wheels w/ tires? I really like these rims especially for the cost of $165 each shipped. The tires cost me like $105 each shipped and they came mounted and balanced. Now I need some lug nuts!!

Just got my MB Weapons a few days ago. 18x8 ET45 gunmetal with 225/40/18 Falken Ze-912 tires. Hub rings included for free. Also picked up Gorilla lug nuts with locks. I initially told the sales rep that I'll pass on the tire warranty, so he offered to half the price for me. $26.50 for this warranty is not too bad... not too bad at all. Overall, very happy with the purchase--they shipped quickly and everything arrived in pristine shape. Discount Tire ftw!

Nice. Those are the kind of rims I want to put on my ride. It's hard to find all black/grey rims.

a 18x7.5 is kinda a waste, IMO

too narrow to take a tire of any width

id much rather have a 17x8 with a 245/40

I also had good experience with Discount tire. I bought my winter wheels and tires from them, arrived quickly, no marks on any of the wheels from mounting, came with hub rings and lug nuts.

they had a much better selection of low priced wheels than tire rack

i got the 18x7.5 because it came in the correct offset of et48. 18x8 only came in et45. After reading the offset sticky, et45 was out of the range of a 8" rim. I didnt plan on running anything wider then 225. I had 18x7.5 bbs wheels w/ 225 tires on my last car and it was perfect for my needs.

You can always take 10 minutes and take one of yours off and throw it on that nifty scale you have there.
