14" steelies weight?

Ford Focus Wheel & Tire Information

This list does not include the weight of the stock 14" wheels. Is this posted somewhere? I am not having any luck with the Google.

I haven't seen that info posted either, but my guess is that they are as heavy as a bigger 15" stock alloy or even heavier. Sometimes Tirerack has the steel wheels shown on their site and usually has weights for them as well. If not, drop Trevor our Tirerack rep an email, I bet he can get some comparison info to you.

Yup - they aren't exactly "light" (grin)

Why do you ask?

Are you trying to figure weight savings?

"Steelies" are certainly acceptable for DD, but with good stock alloy wheels avail. cheap used, an upgrade to at LEAST that level is worthwhile when you are in need of new tires anyways...

I moved up to stock SVT wheels from stock alloy 15" for my summer tire combination, and even that wasn't too expensive once I found a local selling his take offs....

Well, after digging more into the issues with the SPI engine, I am a little worried about adding any unsprung weight to the car and thus creating more work for the motor to do when I upgrade to the 16" SVT wheels. The LX has the 14" steelies on it.
