Weight reduction

Anyone weighed how much weight is save when going from a normal rim to a drag wheel? I have 20X8.5 and 20X10 staggered Foose wheels on my car now and just got a set of 17X4.5 and 15X10 sve drags. Hoping to drop a drop a significant amount. What else is everyone doing to shed a couple hundred lbs off these cars without hacking up the car? Spare tire removal I assume is worth at least another 20?
My car is a premium a6 model with glass roof so a diet could definitely help it out. Also how much more weight does the glass roof add over regular, anyone know?

According to Google they claim to be the best source of static info that requires no specific mastery of technology or skills to be answered such as questions like:

How many feet is a quarter mile?
What temperature does water freeze at in centigrade?
How heavy are sve drag wheels vs Foose?
What is the curb weight of a glass roofed mustang vs a regular mustang?

I would take one rear tire and one front tire from the SVE wheels and weigh them then weigh the Foose wheels. That will get you an exact number on the wheel weigh lost.

That'll be the plan, although I didn't go with the typical 275 tire. I opted for the 295 ET Street radials on the rears. Should still be lighter then my current rears though I'd imagine.

I have to agree on your laziness and actual stupidity.

You're asking us how much weight you're going to save with wheels... when you have both sets of wheels in hand! That's kind of stupid.

It varies greatly on what setups you have. I saved about 4-5 lbs per tire going from stock 19" to my TSW 19's, while also going wider. You could theoretically save 10+ lbs per tire going from heavy crappy wheels to nice lightweight wheels.

Put Tire 1 on scale, Put Tire 2 on scale.

Heavier tire - lighter tire is how much you'll save.

I have to disagree with you crizzle. Having both tires but being too lazy to weigh them himself isn't "kind of stupid." That's straight up lazy stupid! Lol

But other than that you called it right brother! Lol

Actually, I don't have both sets in hand.... Yet... Hopefully end of tomorrow though. I was just asking what results others have gotten basically. Like rough estimates. And the question wasn't just bout the wheels. I always see ppl make a point to mention when they have a glass roof. This implies someone at some point has figured out the weight difference and it was significant enough to be mentioned.... Nothing lazy about asking some questions what so ever. If someone has that info hopefully they chime in. The thread rap posted was of help on its own. That was a useful reply.

How much slower will my car be if I eat a huge Thanksgiving dinner and go for post dinner pre-***** joy ride? I'm just looking for a rough estimate on the extra weight to power ratio if anyone has encountered this themselves please chime in...

Depends on what you eat. If you ate a 300 pound blonde or brunette turkey then that extra 300 pound of cheese will for sure slow your car down by about 0.3-0.4 seconds on the quarter and 0.2-0.3 seconds to 60. Lol

Eat lean meat... It's better for you lol

Coming from the guy with a sport line drop who was too lazy (or cheap) to fix his camber or address his shocks and struts that weren't made for his springs? Hmm....

Looks like the 20 x 10 is 35 lbs
The 20 x 8.5 is 33

I'm assuming i looked up the right wheels since you failed to mention which Foose wheels, you just expect me to be psychic and know what you want. Must be a woman.

At any rate, the 17 x 4.5 SVE Drag is 17.16 lbs
The 15 x 10 is 16.3

Obviously this is without tires. If you care enough, you can google the weight of your tires and figure it out... or just wait till you have the damn wheels and weigh them. Lazy ***. 0 fks given if this is "Your" thread, dont come in here acting like you own ****. The point of a forum is not to spoon feed people, its to serve as a knowledge base for people to actually ... search ... for the answers to their questions, as opposed to cluttering up the feed.

BTW, that took less than 5 minutes on google.

Ok, since you went half the distance, I'll go the rest & spoon feed him.

OLD set up: 34 lbs per wheel + 30 lbs per tire = 64 lbs

64 x 4 = 256 lbs of wheels

Drag wheels:
front: 17 lb wheel + 12 lb tire = 29 lbs x 2 = 58
rear: 16.5 lbs wheel + 39 lb tire = 55.5 lbs x 2 = 111 <edit wrong #'s & bad math>
TOTAL = 169 lbs

Savings of 87 lbs of unsprung mass.

This should apply to how much weight you save by going from stock wheels to drag radials also since those 20's are almost exactly the same weight as my OEM 19" wheel + 245/45 tires.

I can say that just losing 5 lbs per wheel/tire made a noticeable difference in the feel of the car, so loosing approx. 90 lbs should be very noticeable & significant.

OLD set up: 34 lbs per wheel + 30 lbs per tire = 64 lbs (coincidentally is about the same as stock 19" 245/45 wheels)



64 x 4 = 256 lbs of wheels



Drag wheels:

front: 17 lb wheel + 12 lb tire = 29 lbs x 2 = 58

rear: 16.5 lbs wheel + 31 lb tire = 37.5 lbs x 2 = 75

TOTAL = 133 lbs



Savings of 123 lbs of rotational / unsprung mass.

Congrats...you know how to use a search engine. Wtf is wrong with you people. What's the point of a forum if people don't ask questions? The guy was asking a question. He wanted to come here instead of going to google. You should be thankful that he actually wants to come here and deal with you jerks.

Obviously, you've never heard the old proverb....
Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish... feed him for a lifetime.

Problem with today's society is too many jacktards going around begging for fish, instead of learning how to fish.

We're trying to teach him how to fish. A point in the right direction.... with directions on where to go... is better, than holding his hand like a baby and walking him to his destination. Then he will learn & become an educated useful person than can TEACH other people this same information... and the wealth of knowledge (the fish and how to fish) is spread.

FYI. my sources for tire weights:
Front drag: Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels
Rear drag: Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels

20" tire: Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels

I just used this one brand as an apples to apples comparison. Some brands are lighter or heavier so the differences could change either direction based on specific tires.

No, that is not the point of a forum. The point of a forum SHOULD be to serve as a knowledge base:
1. The question gets asked maybe a few times, and all relevant discussion regarding that topic happens in those threads.
2. People looking for information on said topic only have to look through 1-2 threads to find most of what they need.
3. everyone is happy.

How forums actually work:
100x "which intake is the best" threads daily
150x "which exhaust is the best" threads daily
50x "what lowering springs should i get" threads daily

Now, anyone who actually does take the initiative to search has to deal with all those pointless threads with nothing useful in them. This thread will now pop up when people search "weight reduction" and its a useless thread. The point of a forum is NOT to get spoon fed, its to serve more as a library of information, if people keep going and filling the shelves of the library with pointless t hreads, eventually everyone stops bothering to search and just wants answers because its honestly too much work to sort through the crap at that point. Its a downhill snow ball effect that people like you allow to happen.

Your hit it on the head bud, a LOT of whiny cry babies on this forum. Lot of better forums out there I'm seeing. What they don't seem to get is there was more asked then just the wheel weight, a close estimate would have sufficed. Example being my question about the glass roof and someone replies Google Base model vs glass roof. Guess what, not much info. One would think being a Mustang forum someone would be knowledgeable and just answer then that information would be spread by anyone seeing it to anyone else wondering, but nope they'd rather find something to whine about. Can't tell ya how may times I may have seen a thread with a question that's wasn't a new one to me but I knew the answer so just posted it not start trolling taking ****. But whatever let the sheeple be sheeple. Nothing is gonna change that. Eventually nobody will start any new threads and the forum will just die off and nobody will come on here. Been on a lot of LS forums before in the past and never seen this amount of cry baby bs...

This should apply to how much weight you save by going from stock wheels to drag radials also since those 20's are almost exactly the same weight as my OEM 19" wheel + 245/45 tires.

I can say that just losing 5 lbs per wheel/tire made a noticeable difference in the feel of the car, so loosing approx. 90 lbs should be very noticeable & significant.
Thanks for the info. On the other hand the bs wasn't necessary. There is no "spoon feeding". This isn't one of those exhaust or cold air threads. It was actually some questions I've seen asked or mentioned before in other threads that nobody ever answered. And I will happily pass the information along should I ever see it asked. Would have been a good result for a search once the answers were posted until all the bs cluttered it up. One purpose of a forum is for information, not to say use Google. I guess all the forums should just be closed down right? I mean who needs any of this when we all have the all mighty Google and it's infinite wisdom? Personally when I posted the thread I was at work. I may have time to post a thread but not be sitting searching Google.

I literally do not see anyone in here whining but you, but here.

A guy weighed his GT A6 Premium and found it to be 3700 dead via allfordmustangs forum.
I have also seen 3 separate forums, which you ... claim to visit quite frequently, claim the Glass roof to be 24 - 26 lbs net gain over the original roof. All of your questions have been answered now.

Maybe u should read through all the bull**** again, but I wouldn't blame ya if u didn't wanna waste the time. Not me the one whining but a couple others. All I did was ask a question. Thanks for the information. I did come across one thread on it but since I wasn't a member it wouldn't let me read it. At 26 lbs it's a lot less of a gain in weight then I thought it was by a lot of ppl making a point to mention that option when discussing vehicle weight.

I'm assuming i looked up the right wheels since you failed to mention which Foose wheels, you just expect me to be psychic and know what you want. Must be a woman.

At any rate, the 17 x 4.5 SVE Drag is 17.16 lbs
The 15 x 10 is 16.3

Obviously this is without tires. If you care enough, you can google the weight of your tires and figure it out... or just wait till you have the damn wheels and weigh them. Lazy ***. 0 fks given if this is "Your" thread, dont come in here acting like you own ****. The point of a forum is not to spoon feed people, its to serve as a knowledge base for people to actually ... search ... for the answers to their questions, as opposed to cluttering up the feed.

BTW, that took less than 5 minutes on google.

Look at all the whining and nagging in your post above...and ironically you call HIM a women? Bro...wake the **** up.

Oh nice. That's pretty macho of you to insinuate that you get more action than me. Unfortunately for you... I can guarantee that is pretty far from the truth in every possible way. A for effort though...
