Default FXT wheel weight?

Does anyone know what the weight is for the factoy 16" FXT wheels? I have been looking on Tire Rack and it seems that most of the 17" wheels that they have (under $200) are in the 18-23 lb range. Do the FXT rims fall under this range, and if so what kind of difference would be felt with more unsprung weight? Additionally, does anyone know the weight of the Geolanders that come with the FXT. Thanks.

I only know the total weight of the wheel and tire and that's 38 Lbs. I went to some 17" OZ Superlegs and the wheel and tire for that was 39 Lbs so I'm guessing the Forester wheels are in the 16 lb range. The OZ rim itself is 15.2 lbs Subaru wheels tend to be nice and light. This will give you an idea:


Reducing unsprung weight is always a good thing, get the lightest wheel you can afford.
