I weighed my 16" sport wheels before I shipped them and they were @19lbs each. I've read the 18"s were right around 30lbs.

Which ones are that? I assume either 3879 or 3879 (white and charcoal 16")?

24 lbs.

I sent an ebay message to a seller with one of these and asked what the actual weight is. He just replied with this response...

Hi Mike,
Thank you for your interest in the 17" 2012 Ford Focus factory alloy wheel. The wheel weighs 24 lbs. Let me know if there is anything else I can help answer.
Regards,
Anthony


The stock tires I have on these (Continental ConiProContact 215/50R17) weigh 22 lbs.

So I've currently got 46lbs at each corner and will be swapping them eventually with Titanium Michelin Pilot Sport 3 235/40ZR18 which also weighs 22 lbs and wheels (zillon-esque) in the mid 23 lb range. So good to know I'm not adding weight by going to 18" wheels.



By the way, TireRack.com lists these Ford Racing Titanium style 18" wheels at 25.8 lbs.
25.8 lbs.


And for good measure, based on RonMaiden's post about the 16" wheels...
19 lbs.

I'll be posting just the wheel pictures and weights over on the thread entitled 2012 Focus Wheel/Tire Guide.

Relative to the aftermarket, the stock 17" is a bit on the porky side. The stock 16" and 18" are right around the average though.

Thank you 2012 SEL for the info. I've been trying to find the weight of the 17's for ages. My new 18's are 19.8lbs each. Awesome.

yea those arent really THAT heavy compared to anything else that size you could have. If it were any lighter I would worry about curb rash ruining them
