I searched on the forum and viewed the Yoko AO48 pdf and couldn't find the tire weights.

Does anyone know what they are? If not all, maybe just...195/16-50, 225/16-45, 225/17-45, 235/17-45 and 245/17-40.

FYI, the R888 pdf has all the weights listed.


thanks.

a048 - 195/50-16: 19lbs ea.
a048 - 225/45-17: 21lbs ea.
total of: 80lbs on tires alone

r888 - 195/50-16: 20lbs ea.
r888 - 225/40-17: 24lbs ea.
total of: 88lbs on tires alone

question is: does the increase in traction/longevity on the r888 worth it by adding another 8lbs of unsprung weight?

Was told by a buddy that his Volks TE37 + R888 actually weigh more than the LSS + A048.

I shaved my R888's which dropped some weight off them, probably a pound or 2 per tire... :D

Are those the LTS? The M and MH in the same sizes weigh about 1 pound each more than the LTS.:shift:

looked like they're the same weight to me...LTS & the others.

I've got 195/50-16 LTS and 245/40-17 MH
