How much does a NASCAR tire weigh?
I’m an avid NASCAR fan, and I love watching how quickly they change the tires during a pit stop. They look massive, but they move them so quickly! I’m curious, what does a NASCAR tire weigh?
Answer provided by
NASCAR tires each weigh 24 lbs by themselves and 27 lbs with their inner liners.
They may be lighter than they appear, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that they’re cheap—these 11.5 inch wide tires cost an average of $500 each! During a race, each team is allotted five sets of tires per race.
The rubber on NASCAR tires is unusually thin, only 3/32 of an inch. To put this into perspective, a standard car tire is normally 11/32 of an inch thick.
While you’re probably not whipping around a racecar track raking in millions from sponsorships, that doesn’t mean that your car isn’t important to you.
