15 inch steel wheel weight

Anyone know what the factory 15 inch steel wheel weighs? I'm looking at after market alloy wheels and one of the rims I'm considering (Enkei) weighs 17.5 pounds and the other (borbet) weighs 19. I'd like to know how that compares to the 15 inch steel rim already on the car, but I can't seem to find that information anywhere. Thanks.

USA weight of 2010 15 inch oem steel wheel?

I got a 2010 corolla and hated the Firestone Affinity tires. I got some Michellin harmony 195/65/15 and all is great but it seems the unsprung weight is higher and i notice it. What is the weight of the stock OEM 09-010 steel wheel? It seems the old tires weighted 19lbs and the new one is at 24.8. That is almost 6lbs more. I want to get a rim that will decrease this weight. How much does the OEM alloy wheel weight?

I looked into this as I was trying to find a way to reduce the weight of the wheel for mpg purposes. Seems like its actually pretty light, light enough to have some Prius owners want Corolla rims for winters, and the steelies were only around 20lbs if what I read was correct. So now I am left to deciding whether I want alloy rims for just looks now....

I' am also under the impression that 15inch steelies are 20lbs. I read it on this forum some where. I don't have the time or patience to dig it up. Someone might though

My 2010 Corolla CE is installed with 15X6.5J alloy wheel in place of the stock 15X6J steel wheels. The stock Firestone 195/65 R15 are remounted on the new alloy wheel. The car looks much smarter with the alloy wheels.

The alloy wheel is slightly lighter than the steel wheel. Howerver, the alloy wheels were not weighted before they are mounted.

4 stock wheels with stock wheel covers were found to weight 80 lbs by bathroom scale.
It would mean 1 stock wheel with cover weights about 20 lbs.

You should be able to easily find a 15" alloy wheel that weighs less than the 20 lbs, the Enkei PF01 that I ordered in a 17" x 8" only weighs 15.5 lbs!

Yes, I know as that's what I said in my response. My point was that I was able to find a 17" wheel that weighed in at only 15.5lbs, I ordered some 16" wheels for my MR2 that only weigh 14 lbs so you should be able to find a 15" wheel that weighs less than 20lbs! If you want a very light wheel you should be able to find a 15" wheel in the 13 lb range.
