    Hi,

    I need to buy new front wheels and tires for my pro mod and was wondering if anyone actually weighed them back to back to see which is lighter. Looking at either a V series or Full throttle wheel and 24*5*15 tires.

    As per Jeg's website the Hoosier is 1 lb lighter and it doesn't show weight on the wheels.

    Anyone have side by side weights on these items?

    Thanks,
    Trevor Sherwood

    Thanks,

    Someone told me the Full throttles were 1/4 lb heavier than the V series but I'm surprised the magnums are so light, I know on the Pro rears the Alumastar's are lighter than the magnum's.
