    Re: The wheel data thread

    Has anyone weighed in a 17" BBS RX wheel?
    Have I missed a table collating all the data?
    If no-one's done this I'd happily sort it but have only Word or XL. If I sort this can someone else transpose an MS file into a graphic file compatible with CF?

    Seriously? The 17" Conti is only 7.7Kg on it's own, meaning your wheels are a whopping 11.1Kg, which can't be right. Either air is heavy (I assume they're pumped up?) or your scales are a little off

    Haha, yep the tyres were pumped up. I used my bathroom scales and they seemed good in the past. The wheels did feel a bit on the hefty side to lift! Maybe I need some TD Pro or similar then!
