How much do car rims weigh?

I want to buy a new set of rims from someone across town and put them in the trunk of my car, but I’m afraid they’ll be too heavy. How much do car rims usually weigh?

Answer
Average car rims weigh about 30 pounds for just the metal, and another 27 pounds for the rubber tire, making the weight for the entire wheel about 50-60 pounds. Of course, this can vary depending on the size and material of the rims.
All-terrain and run flat tires tend to have more rubber and material inside, thus making them heavier than standard street tires. In the case of run flats, this is better than driving on a flat tire but may make the wheel more difficult to transport.
Any time you make modifications to your car, including non-standard rims, be sure to notify your car insurance company. Your car insurance company will want to know about these changes to ensure your vehicle is fully covered in the event of an accident. If your rates rise because of the new rims, it might be time to shop around.
