Hey Rob,

How about adding a column for 215/45/17 for us wagon owners?

Proxes T1-S _____ 20.1
Proxes FZ4 ______ 21
PP S-03 ________ 24
SZ50 EP _______ 22
712 ECSTA _______ 23
MX __________ 22 (estimated from weights of other sizes)

I e-mailed Goodyear about the Eagle F1 GS-D3 and got a reply that this tire weighs 25 lb in 215/45/17.

205/55/16 Bridgestone RE92 = 22 lbs.

Good Thread!

most tire manufacturers websites have the weighs posted. What is odd is that people often dont focus on tire weight, when in fact, since the tire is the outer edge of the whole rotating assembly, it has the most effect on rotational intertia. Think about it, tires often weight the same as wheels.

One other thing that people need to keep in mind with tire weights is that while some tires weights might increase slightly, it may be because of a reinforced sidewall. So there can be some tradeoff in handling verses acceleration.

shipping weight in a box for two 225/50/16 Michelin Pilot A/S tires was 56lbs. The box probably weighs 1-2lbs, i'd say the tires weigh 27lbs.
