ZL1 Wheel & Tire Weights

Question for all you ZL1 owners out there. Have any of you weighed one of your Front and one of your Rear Wheels w/Tires? I'm curious how much they weight. I weighed my SS/RS polished wheels and they came in a ~70 lbs each for the rears and ~65 lbs each for the front. I was thinking there might be some good potential weight savings there and I wondered how much the ZL1 wheels weight. Anyone have any info on this?

Thanks.

Nick.

That's nice info! Thanks. I believe the ZL1 wheels are an inch wider at each corner of the car compared to a standard SS and it looks like they weight a little less than the polished SS/RS wheels. Not a huge weight savings but with the increased contact patch surface area the added traction with no weight penalty is a nice bonus.
Thanks for weighing your wheels and posting the info!

How can we trust you, you're a criminal.

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"
