AZBrandon at cleanmpg just posted that his HX wheels were 11.75 (not 12)each on the PO scale. I just lost another lb! So 11.75+12.65= 24.4 lbs each. Not bad for 14".

I can't imagine that paint added much weight to the VX wheels. So with your Yokohama's at 15 lb each, that puts you at 24.75/wheel. So we have about the same rotating weight, assuming that our rotors and drums weigh the same.

They are the same, indeed, I imagine that I come out to a little less work than you in terms of rotating effort because my treads will be a whole inch closer to the axel than your, and that's where a buttload of the weight is, but it's prolly very close because of your tire choice, you might even be winning.

Clear coat and other rims should've been done today, but it's raining!

Actually, the 165/65/14 RE 92's are 22.5" diameter. The 175/70/13 Yoko Avid Tourings are 22.7" diameter. Go figure? Looks like our buttloads are about the same. :)

Nah, I'm pretty sure I suck a little bit more than you.

how heavy does a steel rim
 
how heavy does a steel rim compared to an alloy one?

I think my steelies weigh
 
I think my steelies weigh about 15-17 pounds, not entirely sure though offhand. It's a big difference.

Just put the last coat of clear on, more updates later. Now I gotta "set" my timing and try out jared's iacv.
