O.K. when i was looking into buying wheels for my wifes TRX i was sold on hiper, but what do they weigh? How much lighter are they? I also REALLY liked the OMF scalloped beadlocks. So i called a few companies and got the weight of their wheels. Below is the information THE MANUFACTURER GAVE ME ........ Direct from the MANUFACTURER.

Hiper Tech (non-integrated hub version)

10x5 outer beadlock - 5.5 lbs
10x5 non-beadlocks - 4.5 lbs
9X9 inner and outer beadlock - 8.0 lbs
8x8 inner and outer beadlock - 7.0 lbs

OMF scalloped beadlock

10x5 outer beadlock inner reinforcment ring - 6.5 lbs
9x8 outer beadlock inner reinforcment ring - 7.5 lbs

Douglas Wheels no beadlocks no reinforcment rings

10x5 - Red - 4.15 lbs
10x5 - Black - 3.85 lbs
10x5 - Blue - 2.75
9x8 - Red - 4.6 lbs
9x8 - Black - 3.95
9x8 - Blue 3.15
8x8 - Red - 3.95
8x8 - Black - 3.15
8x8 - Blue - 2.16

Below weighed by HQ Members!

Wheels:

8x8 Stock rims powdercoated black - 3lbs
8x8 douglas blue label rims - 2.5 lbs per rim

Tire and Wheel combos:

18x9.5x8 Skat Trak6 paddle glider (kids tire) on 8x8 blue label rims = 10.6lbs

20x11x10 ITP 8 paddle Sand Star on 10x8 ITP T9 Pro rims = 17.4lbs

21x12x8 Skat Trak Hauler 7 paddle (Std. Buff) on 8x8 blue label rims = 13.2lbs

21x12x8 Sand Tires Unlimited 6 paddle Padla Brat (comp. cut) on 8x8 blue label rims = 9.4lbs

I do believe they stoped making those. And to add to the list. Hiper 10x9 single bead was just under 7lbs.

Did Hyper quote you that or did you weigh it? I will i could really get the actual weights of a bunch of rims all done on the same scale. I just have wayyyy tooo much going on right now. So this was the best i could do.

Bathroom scale. May not be exactly accurate, but I am sure it is pretty close.

Interesting numbers Steve...Hiper actually claimed their 10x5 single beadlock front to be heavier than I weighed it out at (5lbs 1 ounce).

Hmm, this makes me really curious to see what the weight of the standard douglass beadlocks weigh

Great info. I was just thinking about using my omf beadlocks with the new tires I ordered when they get here and was wondering about how much more weight I would be adding compared to the stock rims.

Anyone have a number for the stock rear rims on a Ltr?

oops nevermind I don't have the scalloped beadlocks I'll just use the produce scale at my local market-LOL
