I haven't googled it. Just from working in tire shops and knowing the relative weight of various tire and wheel combos, I'm thinking 30 lbs for just the rim without a tire mounted.

How close am I?

OK I just googled several ways and registered for the F150 forum. I have found 37 sources for lead wheel weights but so far nothing on the weight of a wheel. I think it turns out that nobody driving trucks cares about the weight of a wheel.

Yeah, thanks for that. I am now thinking if a Toyota corolla wheel weighs 19# then an f150 wheel must weigh 25 to 30.

I was thinking of switching to steel wheels because of the wheel cover options but my outlaws I already have on it only weigh about 16# so I guess I'll have to stick with them.
