The Weld 20x5 wheels showed up today, very pretty indeed, but they weigh substantially more than the quoted 19 lbs ☹.

On my scale they come in at approximately 25.3lbs.

Ad that to the tire weight of approximately 17lbs 9.8oz,

Makes for an approximate weight of the wheel and tire combo of 43.3 lbs.
Compare that to my factory forged 5 spoke 20x9.5 wheel, with Pzero 275/40/20 tire,
It weighs in on the same scale at approximately 58lbs 8oz.
That makes a savings of approximately 15.5 lbs per wheel and tire combo, for total 31lbs of rotating mass, plus the lower rolling resistance of the much skinnier tire.
The cost of the set for me was $1504, plus mounting and balancing.
I'm kind of torn on this if the wheels had indeed weighed in at 19lbs the savings would have been 43lbs total, which is what I was counting on, an I'd be thrilled.
But at 31lbs, approximately a 28% increase in weight, while still good with it I'm less than enthusiastic.
